"Were really shocking, 97% of people there, he said, would soon be too poor to fend for themselves. I'm just going to read you a few lines of what he wrote. He said, by standing aside, we've not just taken leave of the country. Historians will look back and ask if we've taken leave of our collective sensors. Well, at women's art we've been keeping across the situation, particularly with what's happening to women and girls and the BBC's yalda hakim joins me now yelled welcome. Thank you so much. It's about a hundred days since teenage girls were prevented many of them from going to school at the time, the Taliban said that that van was temporary for the girl's own safety and they cited security reasons. Obviously, the fear is that it's permanent. What are your thoughts? Well, indeed, I mean, the Afghan people have a reference point. And that is the rule of the Taliban in the 90s, when they said that they were putting a de facto ban on girls education and women going to work because of security concerns. Now, those security concerns lasted for the duration of the Taliban rule that was a total of 5 years. The big question has been for the last more than hundred days now, a 104 days to be precise. Why this ban on girls over the age of 12? Why, when they put out the statement more than a hundred days ago that all boys across the country could go to school and girls under the age of 12 could go to school, why then this ban on teenage girls? And this really has been the concern of so many young girls young women who are not just banned from school, but also public universities. Kabul university, for example, remains closed. Girls and mostly women can not go to work. So there are huge concerns. I was in Afghanistan about two weeks ago. And I traveled from cardboard down to Kandahar to Helmand right across the board. There continues to be concern from women's groups from civil society about the future of girls education as well as women. This feels like such a regression. You know, we were told that this was a new modern Taliban and there is a real concern as you say that we're heading back to the dark days of the 90s when women and girls were basically moved to the fringes of society. Are the Taliban actually saying anything about this? I mean, are they giving you any explanations? Well, I interviewed everyone from one of the leaders of the Haqqani network and you'll remember the infamous Haqqani network were accused of being behind some of the huge large scale attacks on civilians over the last 20 years. I also interviewed the spokesperson of the foreign ministry and also the international spokesperson of the Taliban. They continue to say that women have the right to work..

New Taliban Chancellor Bars Women From Kabul University

"Taliban and close kabul university to women. This is not surprising yesterday. Hung four people from cranes. That's not surprising what we see happening out of there. We'll continue to get worse and more roll out over the days and weeks and months ahead my question is. Are you still in touch with some of the pineapple express people. There are lot of that trend's who are working to get a lot of people out of afghanistan. They're calling every chit around town. That i know of everyone is getting asked by these people to help. And everyone's trying to help assume you're getting those calls to how. Why do you think it is for the vets to be there working sub rosa to get people out. Oh i think it's additive and we've got to at it and let's face it. Nobody is going to be more passionate about getting at risk. Afghans than the americans who worked alongside those afghans. And you know. We often use shorthand interpreter. But it's it's vast number of people hundred thousand plus maybe two hundred thousand when you add in them and their families who were interpreters logisticians frontline soldiers commandos helicopter pilots. I it's the entire gamut of afghans who stood with us and we have a deep moral obligation to get them out and yes I know dozens of veterans. Who are bombed in this It some are more successful than others. there are a wide variety of ways in which they're trying to help these people and I think it'll be additive to what the us government needs to be doing which i assume is being directed largely by the cia at this point. Because i don't see the department of defense Publicly visibly going after this. I think that To conclude. I think that lloyd austin and mark milley will be asked about that in public testimony. Today what are you doing to get people out of death. Ghanistan

It's the towel they got a twitch right and when you start twitching and doing stuff like this poker tell and it tells me that their internals are bad. Terry is old tired. That biden is old and tired. And that the biden being old and tired and the afghanistan debacle especially virginia. People forget. virginia is a if anybody is upset with the you know just today's story is that kabul university has been closed a women if anybody has pro-women in virginia or pro-military they're not going to vote for terry mcauliffe after this tobacco and afghanistan byron york. It's not going to happen. So does this debate tonight matter the one that chuck todd is is moderating not as much i mean i think that the fundamentals of the race are pretty clear But here's what's going to happen there. mcauliffe is going to try to connect young to donald trump. And say how how terrible donald trump is over and over and over and over so that. That's that's what's going to happen so if you believe that Eight donald trump is terrible. And be going. How can his just like him or is going to be enthralled donald trump. And you can vote for terry mcauliffe but i think this trick only you know there. They are kind of a wintry pony here. And i think it only goes so far and in the first debate Young can was was pretty strong and has maintained his independence. And so. I don't think that's gonna change. You know i don't expect check also to fall for the donald trump thing i. I don't think he will allow the first moderator. Was just in the bag from mukalla just a democrat in the bag from a call up and they kept bringing up trump. I don't think chuck's going to fall for that stuff. This virginia race about virginia taxes virginia education critical race theory in loudon county. They don't wanna talk about it right.

"Your home in your thank you for having me. There's a debate tonight in virginia between young and and they all old all has been washed. Terry mcauliffe and i'm here to tell you that we are going to be already done voting. The fetchy mrs. You're not gonna vote today. There's early voting in virginia. Going to vote for glenn young. And i don't know why anyone would vote for terry. Mcauliffe is to goodness. It's just more taxes and virginia's already losing businesses and people to tennessee and north carolina and florida and the rest of those places without taxes. And terry mcauliffe wants to come in and get taxes terry. Mcauliffe is in pretty desperate shape. And i know that because yesterday a democratic group began running. Ads slamming glenn young for not having been endorsed by gun groups that's right of term call is an endorsed by gun groups. Either they're not endorsing. And that's because glenn junket is center right conservative. Pretty good hunter by the way knows firearms. Wouldn't fill out any checklist for any group is. why didn't get the endorsement. And therefore terry mcauliffe who is desperate because he falling behind in every paul. It's either gotten closer and closer is now running ads and democratic groups running ads accusing glen. Yeah could have being soft on guns. I that's how terry. That's that's just. Mccall up roles in fact. Let's go to the first debate that they had and grab a clip from that where. It's sort of illustrates. Glenn junkin style and terry mcauliffe. Stup- listening hearing is cut number ten from their first debate article when he called me anti. That's ally i'm not anti vaccine fact. He appointed a woman to the george mason board. That was absolutely anti vaccine. Only the reason he did it is because she gave him hundreds of thousands of dollars for his campaign his position flipflops based on. Who's paying him. And in this case. I support the vaccine. I stand up for the vaccine. Individuals of the moderator worked hand in glove with terry mcauliffe in the first debate. And glenn one anyway. And i'll be going off to vote for glenn young today regardless of of what people say in the next hours i made up my mind. I'm voting for clinton young. I want everyone to get out and vote for glenn young and early. It's the only smart thing to do. However however i want you to know the tonight's debate speaking moderated by my friend chuck. Todd i expect he will be very always as an affair moderator. Glenn yankee wins go terry. Mcauliffe is showing his age showing his old liberal stakes. Meanwhile democrats are in complete disarray. So the national context for the state of virginia gubernatorial race is discussed with joe biden. The lead story. This morning is the taliban announced new taliban chancellor of kabul university announces women are banned tightening. The taliban restriction on women the group's new chancellor for kabul university announced on women announced on monday that women would be indefinitely banned from the institution either as instructors or students. I give you my words. A chance of kabul university mohammad ashraf got rot. Set in a tweet monday as long as real islamic environment is not provided for all women will not be to the universities or work islam i so the inevitability of joe biden's collapse inevitabilities of his incoherency. Cnn billy of his. The inevitability of his infirmity has come home to roost. Later today i take an interview with john. andros zeke. Yesterday that will play for you an hour number three today all predictable. Joe biden is responsible for this fiasco and you should know that and when you vote in the virginia election you should know that you should also know that. The republicans stopped yesterday and absurd bill hiking national debt. The democrats don't wanna pass on their own to cover the massive after attach it to their massive tax and spend bill which is already running into trouble yesterday proposed a new twenty percent hike in a carbon tax. It's a it's it's one of the most amazing taxes out of nowhere. They came up with this massive new tax and then told anyone about it. They wanted to tax all carbon products. This massive new tax and some of the moderate democrats. Got the other said. You know we're not really gonna vote for that so there's a deadlock the republicans as expected. Turn down the debt limit. Their accomplices in the media are trying very hard to make that appear to be a normal thing to make that appear to be a republican problem. It's not the democrats can't get their act together. They cannot make up their mind on what to do. Because the moderates and progressives cannot agree there are no moderate the liberals and the leftist category. That's the problem with the democratic party. The liberals and the leftist candidate other news over at the landing page of the washington post. You'll find minute editorial on vaccines. Trust the doctors. Not the internet. And i drew on my now decades old experience with the chad green case where chad green parents simply would not allow modern medicine to treat chad six year. Four year. old boy at the time. They eventually bolted for mexico. Took him to mexico to try lay a trail and when they got to the latrell chad green died and dr truman who i got to know a little bit when i was in undergraduate. Just couldn't do anything about it because he was beyond the jurisdiction in the law but the the people who sold the greens unleaded trill are like the people who are now selling you on anti vaxxers. Just don't believe it. The idea to terry mcauliffe appointed antibac- ser- to the George mason board. I wanna play that one more time. This is from the last debate. Glenn young can cut number ten called me anti tax. That's a lie. I'm not anti vaccine fact. He appointed a woman to the george mason board. That was absolutely anti facs. Only reason he did it is because she gave him hundreds of thousands of dollars for his campaign his position flipflops based on. Who's paying him. And in this case. I support the vaccine. Stand up for the vaccine so young individuals. That is exactly right now. What a play for you as well. John armitt democrat from kentucky chairman of the budget committee. Talking yesterday about why. The democrats have so much problem putting together a massive tax on hike bill but while in the end they will get it done. Cut seventeen so question..

"Welcome back america. Tony lincoln's withering cross examination by the house. Yesterday by the senate is over but not my interview with john andrews author of the now censored by facebook song blood on my hands. Here's the conclusion that interview. I am worried that elite media has transformed slowly over the years into a barricade for the center left and left. and that. if you're not inside the fort you're considered enemy hostels outside of the four. Do you see that happening do you. You're going to be defined. Yeah i guess. I mean again. It's it's it's you know. I take solace in. My dog. Hasn't canceled but i think look as i said. I wrote this song from a moral perspective and i really hoped that some of the mainstream media would take it that way and we send it out to all of them and i've said i'll do anybody show look. I'll do rachel maddow show. I think she she was crying when she saw the pictures of afghanistan. The women there. She understands afghanistan. She may not agree with some of my comments. But it's something we have to discuss. I think it's something we have to keep in front of us because our nature just turned the page. And it's such a broken promise and the human rights. The human cost refugees. What's going to happen. It's a it's a humanitarian crisis. Now and we can't look at this. As a political exercise in a bullet in the war culture war this is a humanitarian crisis. We put them there and it's our job to do all we can to prevent. What's happening right now. I don't know how we do it but if we stopped talking about it certainly nothing's gonna help the most important thing about the son. John it's not really about us. It's about nine and ten year olds being beheaded women being. It's about the chilling photograph in the telegraph on monday. Women are allowed in kabul university. They aren't they are beyond the burqa. Now they're they're hooded and they're wearing black robes only a few of them had slits for there is that the taliban thought they were putting out a good photo for their. You know here. We are modern and women are allowed to ten cricket matches but only if they are taking their by a man so there are no women i. It's almost unbelievable. We're so not used to that in china if we don't see it it's not happening but that's not true especially when you have the capacity to know that it's happening so i'm sorry to interrupt but basically just said the the line of my song it you know. I can't her can't hear her scream if she's not on tv. And that is in fact. The crescendo of your song and i tell people listen to. She's not she's not on tv. He's not he's not on tv. I can't hear her screaming and we don't and we're christians or talk to pray for the imprison the people that you forget every day. 'cause i know people who know stuff about them but now there's an entire country. On which darkness is descending and. I don't know when the lights are going back on their john. It could be five hundred years and who knows what's gonna spread to and who knows now that we basically seeded to the taliban what iran's gonna do russia's going to this could be just a drop in the bucket which which is just trying to think about but i salute you hugh. I know we're friends. I know we have a similar worldview but you launching this song sometimes asong can change the world and i wish it was a better song by bigger songwriter. But this is all we got. And i think the song with you and some other folks keeping it out there and it's growing every day we had two thousand views last night we were over fifty thousand today and it's growing and my emails are rolling in from military families liberals from moderates from conservatives. So it's it's touching vein and maybe this song can you know make sure we have some accountability keep the afghans in our hearts more importantly do some action that will prevent exactly what you're talking about. I don't know what that is. But i think if this movement grows as i said it's a humanitarian crisis and it's on us and nothing else. This government dare not turn. Its back on anybody who they have left behind. Who has a chance of getting out to the help of people like your friend. And i know some people are working on. It's more than one hundred. Americans it's thousands of l. pr's it's tens of thousands of afghans and it's millions going forward so you're doing your best. John i'm glad to help you with that. Let's check in and a few weeks and see how it's going. Thank you for joining me. On on the hugh hewitt show good luck. I'll see you on tour when you're out on the road gave my love to betsy. Thank you. I will be. Well john john. Drowsy is really one of the best people in entertainment and amount that he does on behalf of troops over twenty years the albums that he puts together he runs around to all of his fellow platinum record people and gets them to give up the rights of their song so it can produce albums for the troops who are deployed. He's been doing it for twenty years. He's genuinely in american hero in terms of the entertainment industry being like it was back in the day of world war two and people put everything into it and for facebook.

"Season i know according to the un about one hundred and twenty thousand people fled the country by by air. And of course. We're all very familiar with those scenes from kabul airport. Do we have a sense of how many afghans are are making their way to pakistan by land. I don't have that figure Partly because technically pakistan has closed its borders to afghan refugees. Meaning that those with pakistan visas can get through legally and those with medical necessities are also allowed but we were out the boredom border at tar him near the khyber pass and we saw just a trickle of people coming across the reason pakistan says is look we have You know four million tops undocumented at and registered afghan refugees already in this country. They've been there for decades and we cannot handle a flood surge of more so they've very tightly controlled that border. They're also worried about People who are posing as refugees coming across and creating havoc on either side of that border extremists or Groups like that so they've been tightly controlled so there aren't a lot getting through That border Now we're seeing a different surge in that is that countries like canada are now actively Helping people who are on their list to get to that border and get across of course. This is a negotiation and canada. I think has reported. It has already got more than one hundred and thirty across in the last few weeks right right. You talked earlier about the. He'll fearing the taliban in pakistan. When you talk to other people Other afghans there. What did they tell you. The taliban takeover what what were their feelings towards the taliban it was very interesting we went to some neighborhoods where afghans have settled into the fabric of pakistan for twenty years in this case in rawalpindi which is a city very close to islamabad There was a neighborhood. They're called the g colony and we spoke to many people along the shops in the streets. There and one of them stood out. He was a doctor in his son and they ran a small medical clinic. And the sun know tusla com. New reside said very bluntly that he believed. The taliban is good for his homeland for afghanistan and his father. Dr matola news that he got his medical degree at kabul university but came to pakistan twenty years ago and he says now he'd like to go back and the politics are right. He said and he tried to convince us that. With the taliban empower it would be safer in afghanistan and that for women. It would be better better better for women now. No woman relax healing relaxation now no woman. He said that his rationale was that after twenty years of insecurity and wars corrupt central government in his view nato attacks and taliban i e d threats women vase the video difficult dime during the last twenty years. It was difficult for video difficult and it will be better for women now. How can you say that many women say they can't get educated. They can't picture. I want to extend picture of the taliban. He said that the west was fixated on this black image. A black picture of the when reality many people would Feel that it was more stable and perhaps more hopeful for peace and you know that is a perspective one of them unique.

They are not allowed to enter the Kabul University. In the meantime, the men here they are attending their meeting and they are going to the office but lecturer, especially human picture. They are not allowed to enter the Kabul University three mil servant public servant. They are not allowing to enter their offices. Most of the women they are a great honor. Their own family didn't receive the salary from last two months. In the meantime, the Are not allowing to access to their jobs. So people have a few from Afghanistan so they don't have access to data Bank. A cow's just got a report that the five ex police officer was estimated in the candle yesterday, and I also received the reporters that is formed by home such as Starting in the Somme area, especially our colleagues in the Afghanistan independent to address the commission. They are very concerned about their situation, lost world human rights defender and human rights activists all across the Afghanistan sister prisoner Hindu Chinese. They are released by the Taliban. And they know all the defense by judges, attorneys human rights defenders, So they are looking for the revenge so that that does something happening right now in Afghanistan earlier this week, we saw many women out on the streets of not just the capital, but other places in the country, demonstrating And although they are now not allowed to do so, the interior minister has banned the gathering of people. There are still some women protesting Can you give us some idea of how big these protests are and where they are around the country? Her in most capital of the province is like a Kabul eras. The ranch by the harm Even at the night women they come out to the streets and the demonstrations where they arise and freedom of understand, but unfortunate Yesterday they've beaten some woman and they've beaten some journalist. Even they detained some woman you are invited by the Taliban to come to their office is just too Nice deer position and did recognize who was the attending this demonstrations. What do you think will happen in the next few days? Because it's quite clear. The Taliban is saying You cannot come out onto the streets. You can't protest unless you ask for permission. Do you think that women will continue? To come out and demonstrate Think women have won something They don't have anything to lose. They lose all the fundamental rights. They lose the prior to put splitting the moral decision making the lose their try to education. They lose things again at the last two decades. So the woman they don't have anything to lose. They told us we will come out again and again again just to show that what Taliban are saying what and what they are doing a new left Afghanistan When you look on what is happening now, and the Taliban have been in power for four weeks now since Kabul foul How do you reflect on The complete transformation of your country in such a short space of time. I'm still I'm still in shock. I still It's nightmares. I was for 10 days and advance and after Taliban takeover, what Happened to me and my family free. We moved night by night to other places. We we live underground. We were in a bus for almost 13 hours. So that's every Afghan faced such kind of the difficulties besides that drought Corona wire s conflict, lack of first necessity of life. They don't have access to their salaries to bank accounts to their jobs, and they don't have any Oprah of our future. We can't find the world to explain our feeling the someone who lost their country There's someone who lost their to each other. Someone who loved their career, someone who lost everything that they have. That was Shabnam Salahi, former commissioner for women's affairs in Afghanistan's independent Human Rights Commission. When the Taliban came to power some four weeks ago, many made a dash to try and leave the country. The last two decades of conflict there. Many Afghans have made arduous journeys to leave war behind. A lot of them have ended up at Europe's largest refugee camp Maria in Lesbos in Greece, where there are now 3500 refugees. A year ago, it was burned down. I've been speaking to Kiki Miccoli Do who is the manager of the International Rescue committee's mental health programs on the Greek islands? She began by telling me about the impact of that fire on the refugees, Mental health. Out of the blue people had to evacuate out of the camp and people were left without their whatever belongings they had. People lost their family members, so everyone was looking for it and the other it was pretty shocking for their mental health, which was already in a very bad condition. People who have improved in terms of their mental health, very lapsed a year on we still see a large proportion for clients that are faced. Mental health conditions. We see a large increase in depression related symptoms in behavioral problems. Although people do not live in more here anymore in the living a different camps, the living conditions are still inadequate. The new camp is built on a side that is very exposed to the weather conditions and people. Have limited access to electricity and this insufficient lighting to walk around in the night, so women and vulnerable people are scary to go to the bathroom on their own, so they need to go in pairs..

"Afghanistan is in ruin. The taliban has taken over we spend over a trillion dollars to prop up the government of afghanistan to try and train their military and in doing so we supported this man by the name of ashraf. Ghani you see this guy on tv osh roth. Ghani was the president of afghanistan that want to talk a little about ashraf ghani because i don't think he's got enough attention recently. I don't think he has received enough attention recently. He was born in one thousand nine hundred forty nine his wikipedia bio which you have to take with a little bit of a grain of salt. Let me just say this ashraf. Ghani's wikipedia is much kinder to him than the wikipedia about me and let me be very clear. I did not abandon my country with cash. Keep that in mind when you read read wikipedia. It says that he's an academic. Well that should be a fire alarm right there. But an academic in charge of a country like afghanistan. Your country can't even read. And you're an academic co founder of the institute for state effectiveness in organization. An american organization set up in two thousand five to improve the ability of states to serve their citizens. Don't think he did very well. He went to american university in beirut and then he became a professor at johns hopkins university. Well that explains a lot. John hopkins was one of the first institutions to implement german historicism. I believe that's where john dewey either taught or went to school. Who's basically the father of the modern government school system. He then one worked for the world bank and was the finance minister for hamad karzai's cabinet until his resignation in december of two thousand four. Then he became the dean of kabul university. Oh he's so he's like afghanistan. Woodrow wilson from there. He got into government.

"Casualties. And the kremlin moved the soviets under the leadership of leonard bresjkn if deployed the fourth army across the afghan border and the twenty four hundred. Same by nine thousand nine hundred seventy nine. They arrived in the capital. Kabul staged a coup and installed a soviet loyalist as the new leader of afghanistan. President carter has again condemned the soviet union every involvement in afghanistan. Next month will mark the second anniversary of the intervention of soviet forces in afghanistan to assist the countries coming in to british afghan wars and also in the case of the soviet in nineteen seventy nine. The military were distinctly unenthusiastic. The decision was made by political superiors. In the case of the soviet invasion it was brezhnev brezhnev and gromyko overrule the objections of their senior military staff about the difficulties of occupying this country when the soviets invaded afghanistan they stirred up a hornet's nest. They broke the cardinal rule of afghan politics. Which the british had finally learned. Which is you can't exert influence in the country through its government if you subsidize its government but one thing. The afghans will never stand for is the presence of foreign troops on afghan soil. Now these soviets also went out of their way in the very first years to break what they perceived as the islamic identity of afghanistan and launched a persecution of the islamic religion so severe as necessarily to provoke such an almost suicidal resistance on the part of the afghan until nineteen eighty five in a sense. The soviets were winning through genocide. They were politically winning but they were winning the way. I suppose you could say that. The united states want against the apaches simply through overwhelming crushing force for genocidal policies. But when the united states was finally persuaded to deliver along with the british anti aircraft weaponry like the stingers. the blowpipes to members of the afghan resistance the soviets as of nineteen eighty-six lost control of the air. And as soon as they lost control of the air they lost all control of the ground and their expeditionary force was doomed and had to be withdrawn by nineteen eighty. Nine weapons is still being channel to the mujahideen. The roads below being used transport rebel reinforcements to the siege which a lot of bad it was barren rookie hills like these which took fainted. I the british and the soviets across the in eight to ten etkind families obey and moving into the pakistan took for school. You already three rich. Gene population penny mill at the the united states allowed itself to become the armor and the patron of the most extreme islamic groups in the mujahedeen that means the army of the faithful. Who are the resistance against the soviet union. There was a moderate secular wing of the resistance. They got passed over and partly. Because the pakistanis for their own reasons wanted to have a fundamentalist islamic government beholden to them in kabul. We let the pakistanis determine who got the weapons. We supplied and that. Was i think a tragic mistake out of which came among other things osama bin laden has an cocco is a professor of history at kabul university during this period and spent five years in prison because of his opposition to the soviet invasion. He argues that. It was the pakistanis who undermined the influence of moderate and democratic groups in afghanistan by this support for islamic extremist groups. I come the overriding concern. Afghans including me was i'll to be able to expel the russian army from afghanistan but it was the government of pakistan. Because of the durham line. There must be a regime in afghanistan which d'amato russians with they will have very subordinate position to and hence the health those islamic of utilizations who are extremes and who at the same time wanted to accept the inference about the sun and the nationalist elements the democratic elements. The patriotic elements are those other groups were almost discarded. It was pakistan's choice of course to see to it that the most deadly weaponry was directed into the hands of those islamist groups who are expected to take power in kabul following soviet withdrawal in a manner that would bring afghanistan under complete pakistani influence in february nineteen eighty-nine nine. The soviets withdrew from afghanistan leaving the nation to face a militarized and confident taliban afghan military band playing patriotic well. The afghan president najibullah the head of the moscow backed government here will return to general has crossed the afghan border towards home in the final act of the soviet withdrawal from afghanistan according to the latest edition of the weekly literally.

"To decimate the taliban we're gonna win hearts and minds we're gonna make them love us. We're going to build schools and flower shops and and and hallmark card shops. Well let's start the show officially. And then i've got some comments on that that i learned from tucker carlson that i thought were pretty interesting. I didn't know. I i'm jack. Armstrong joe getty on this. It's tuesday august seventeenth year. Twenty twenty one were armstrong and getty in. We approve this program okay. Then let's begin official. According to rules eggs here we go mark. I am president of the united states of america. And the buck stops with me a lot to get into some of the reception of his speech yesterday. Which which ranged really from. It was okay to it was the worst thing of presidents ever said. There wasn't wasn't much on the positive side of the ledger anywhere. And i mean. I'm including cnn and msnbc but anyway what you were saying about the empire. Yeah yeah i just i. I've been reading about not only afghanistan but but vietnam and iraq and libya and the rest of it. And we have this desire venture in and metal or fix things or boot people out of power but then when it comes to the brutality of actually executing those policies we blanche we. We shy away we. We'd recoil in horror and it's just it's it's this weird half acid well. Nobody's ever tried to do this. In the history of the world. Everybody else has been an actual expansionist empire and we haven't been we try to like settled places down because we think it's in our best interest but we don't really want to hurt anybody or get too pushy lest we called imperialists or something like that and it doesn't work it doesn't seem to work. I mean we're the only country has ever tried to do this. I wonder if maybe we'd do the world. Would we be better off if we just rolled in various places the way like great britain did or romer whoever the spaniards and you just take the country over until you and rural. I don't know. I don't know but tucker was making a point about this yesterday. He mentioned some stuff tucker. Carlson which is most watched cable. News show in america but still doesn't mean much because most people don't watch cable news but and he does this. I only watch like opening monologue. Pretty much we're just. He's he's become an expert at like snarky commentary of the news of the day that he kinda ties together in a point but doesn't really it's it's mostly just a whole bunch of one liners that are fantastic fund fantastic. It's his show is like stephen. Colbert or jimmy fallon. But instead of jokes about what's going on today they're like sarcastic biting comments but it's the same sort of thing. Yeah and it's really interesting like he he's talking about. How did our intelligence agencies. We spend whatever it is five billion dollars a year on our intelligence agencies. How did they miss that afghanistan. Was this ready to fall. Probably because they're busy reading your text message just to make sure you don't make any fun of transpeople which there's certain truths of it. But he's talking about some of the money that we spent in afghanistan for instance kabul university offered a number of women's studies classes that we forced upon them. We'll give you money for the university if you teach this An unconventional gender roles for men. And stuff like this. So we're trying to. We were trying to force twenty first century new hampshire on afghanistan which is a terrible idea. You couldn't have back crap on colorado in one thousand nine hundred sixty let alone afghanistan but we were trying to do that. And the other one that i really liked oh we mandated that the military have at least ten percent of the military had to be women and higher percentages that the government in a country. That's nowhere near ready for that sort of thing men and women and everybody hated that sort of thing. So what we do. Instead of going into iraq and take their oil or afghanistan and take their minerals. We go around trying to export our woke modern version of the world and forced upon people that live in the thousand. It's surprising that doesn't work. Bunch of policy in the state department imagining some sort of perfect world now reminds them of their university classes. Really make this stuff work how f- ghanistan gonna make that stuff work well. In a lot of cases we can't make it work and we shouldn't but it just soften your point just a little bit. I mean the roman empire famously. They're they're ruling of areas was fairly benign. As long as there is no revolt. You could run your economy. The local leaders got to keep power. They said all right. We're the new. Gm you local governors. You're fine just do great you report. Now let's everybody keep cool and you know that sort of thing. What the heck i mean. It's just what what bothers me. And what really got me going was coming across. Not only a couple of official pronouncements from the va but hearing from some of the afghanistan veterans who are our beloved listeners expressing the frustration at the time sacrifice in just the effect afghanistan had on their lives and seeing us. Pull out precipitously. Okay we can argue about pulling out or not in there are there are legitimate arguments all around but what's incredibly frustrating is that we were lied to systematically for two decades about this grand experiment in winning hearts and minds and building up the afghan army and the afghan police force in the afghan a government. It was systematic almost hilariously disingenuous crap out of the government and in our military for years and years and years and years and it's very frustrating. i've heard other people comment on where we are with our respect for anybody authority coming out of you know you could make afghanistan your focal point for that or all of the pandemic at so many levels just sure. Wha- who has a government official from any agency show up on their tv and things wanting to listen to this person that sake is. I'm sure it is going to absolutely be true. And and And couldn't be spun in any other direction than what they're about to tell mike. Go ahead speak whether there's crisis on the border. We need another three and a half trillion dollars to save america. All of it. Don't wear masks. Do wear masks Yeah just who sees an official from any organization show up and think. Well i'm about to get some truth here some unvarnished truth with no politics and no lying thinks that the state department spokes hotels me. The pacific ocean is wet. Walk over and put a foot in just to be sure frigging liars. Cia and nsa or busy reading or text messages to make sure we're not badmouthing trans their job anyway. So how does mail bag look. It is chock full of interesting pithy and and Thought provoking reactions to the afghanistan thing. Yeah we ran We can run through the some of the reaction to the president's speech. The most interesting thing i saw yesterday i was watching. Msnbc and nicole. Wallace who. I can't stand. She's one of those former republicans that makes her living badmouthing the party. That made her famous. So smug smoke. But she she's like she's a communications person. I thought this is really interesting. She might be right. She said after the president's speech she said ninety five percent of the media hates what happened over the weekend. Ninety five percent of america is glad. We're out she might be right about that. Well and i'll give you my grade of the president's speech it's surprisingly charitable on one level.

"Government official says 19 people have been killed and more than 20, others wounded in an attack on Kabul University. Spokesman said the assault ended with the shooting of three gunmen. Afghan forces battled the militants who stormed the campus for several hours. Our correspondent Secunda Kamani has more details. Dozens of students frantically clambered over the university's high walls after the assault began this morning, others tragically we're not able to escape. The attack coincided with the inauguration of an Iranian book fair on the campus with senior Afghan political figures were attending. This is the second time in under 10 days that a place of learning has been targeted in the city. Just over a week ago, more than 20 people were killed in a suicide bombing outside of tuition centre carried out by the Islamic state Group.
