"Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised he would tackle this issue, which can often mean that people end up having to sell their homes to afford the costs of such care. Political correspondent Rob Watson is here in the studio with me, Rob Telesur what the prime minister has announced in Parliament today and also why this is such a huge kind of political hot potato in this country. So this is a universal problem around the world right of aging populations. And how do you pay for that for their non medical care, But let's focus in on what you asked first about the UK and widest controversial It is hugely controversial. It's because Boris Johnson made several eye catching promises at the election that he won in December. 2019 1 of those was to raise none of the major tax is the second one was to fix this problem, you say, What do you do about social care as opposed to medical care? What would happen if you got cancer? Now? Essentially, he's breaking one of those promises not to raise taxes in order to try and deal with this problem of Social Karen. It's and it's raising a lot of money. The early polling indicates that actually suggests that most people would support that. But I guess one wonders what they'll feel like once they once they actually get the tax, But I guess a lot of it will depend on on whether it works. So So what we're looking at is is breaking a manifesto Promise. Yes, And and to that extent, you know, we all those of us who are old enough to remember. Well, remember President Bush's dad, the first president by saying, Read my lips, no new taxes, And there's that sort of sense if you break a pledges as blatant as that. It's potentially very damaging. That's why people have said for Boris Johnson. This is perhaps the political politically riskiest thing He's done since deciding to leave the campaign to leave the European Union. So you mentioned at the outset. This is obviously a problem across the board around the world with an aging population and and I I had mentioned that often people end up having to sell their homes in order to be able to afford. The costs of this. How does the United Kingdom or England compared to other countries in the world? It's super tricky, but to do it as briefly as possible. There are sort of three broad systems one as you have private insurance. So you find that sometimes in the United States and other countries and a lot of European countries, you get what's known as social insurance. That is, the government says right. Everybody's got to ensure themselves against the possibility of needing care. And then the other. The other system, which is sort of what Britain is going for, as his taxation. You do it through taxation. But But interestingly and all of these systems whether you look at Japan career Germany, France United States, the U. K just about everywhere people have to reach into their own pockets. You know, even when the assistance from the government unless you're unless you truly are fantastically poor, and there's a famous think tank in this country, called the King's Fund, which I could recommend looking at And they have looked at all of these models in great depths and save. Interestingly, there just seems to be no ideal model. Wherever you look in the world. It's just a tricky problem. I mean, part of it is just, you know, just It's just a lot of money to spend. Rob Watson, Our political correspondent, joining us live happily here in the studio. You're listening to news hour from the BBC. I'm Razia Iqbal. Now, If you were listening to the program yesterday, you will have heard the special adviser to Pakistan's prime minister. Tell us that it was preposterous to use his word to contend that his country was involved in neighboring Afghanistan's affairs, let alone Supporting the Taliban well in the face of it's possible loss of the Panshir province. The resistance forces to the Taliban called on the people to rise up and continue to fight. Today, Hundreds of people demonstrated to denounce the Taliban and denounce what they see as Pakistan's interference and in particular what they see as Islamabad's active help being given to the Taliban. This protester outside the Pakistan Embassy explained her frustration. I found women want their country to be free. They want Afghanistan to be rebuilt. We are tired. We are tired of Pakistan. Bombing pan share. When will our voices be heard? Well, that was a woman in Kabul. Let's go to Kabul and speak to our chief International correspondent lease do set. At least there's a lot going on in Afghanistan. Not surprisingly, just first of all, let's focus on those demonstrations not just in Kabul but but elsewhere. Extraordinary scenes. You remember Rossiya that in the early days when the Taliban took control, there were very small, very isolated protest, almost always by women. Taking to the streets to demand their rights, and they were quickly dispersed. What we are seeing today is unlike anything we've seen before. Large crowds of women and men. We're talking hundreds but still at taking to the streets. Some of them are calling for respect for women's rights. Women allowed to play a role in the in the society. Others, as you say, are speaking out in support of the resistance in Panjshir. Others are taking aim at Pakistan, accusing it of backing the Taliban backing the attacks on the Punchier Valley and in many of the cases. Taliban have. First of all, they react sometimes quietly, just urging protesters not to take streets and sometimes violently reminding everyone again that this is a still leadership and a movement trying to transform itself into Government as security force they've shown they've been good with guns. Now they've got to be proved to prove their good with government, but quite a grab it. I mean, quite frankly, today, the stories we've heard that they pushed women into the basement of one of the main banks so they wouldn't go onto the streets. In another case, they push them into a parking lot. These are the panicked reactions of a force A is not used to dealing with women on the street. Certainly not these Afghan women extraordinary but also that they don't know how to control the crowds and as part of the way in which they responded. Journalists have been targeted. Very much. So the camera person for what is arguably the biggest Afghan television channel Tolo News had been arrested Wahidi. He's now been freed. We understand, but his equipment was taken when he was taken. He's now he's now free. There's another stories of journalists being attacks. So I have to say that, you know, going to the streets of Kabul for the last few weeks when we are stopped at sea, for example, checkpost often they stop us, but that with some negotiations, you find someone who then says Yes, you can go through, but these protests seem to be something different again. The Taliban seemed to be panicking and lashing out. Both of the protesters and those who want to tell this story. At least we were obviously all acutely aware of what was happening at Kabul airport in terms of people trying to get out of the country. What can you tell us of this news of the planes being held at Mazar e Sharif Airport? His private efforts are still continuing after the military flights stopped and I heard after record many days ago of three planes that were that had been flown to the northern airfield in Mazari Sharif. They were to take American citizens out of Afghanistan as well as vulnerable Afghans. But then all of a sudden the Taliban found out about this flight. They apparently hadn't been informed, and they effectively detained all the people who were waiting to board. We now here? It's come out into the public now, and there's now talk of six planes. And I think this is what one of the issues on the agenda for Anthony Blinken, the US secretary state, who is now in Dhaka, because apparently once the planes are freed by the Taliban, they will go to the Gulf State of Qatar, as have many flights..

Do you think the war is really over now homeless. Do we actually know about what's been happening in punchier. Well the war has perhaps An ended in the sense that the taliban have declared victory across afghanistan but there will be another conflict internally where you will see pockets of resistance across the ghanistan against taliban role and that is something that will likely last for years come because there is resistance towards the taliban at the moment it is not significant enough to concern them but it is something that is noticeable and it is getting a support across many of the urban centers of the country. And what about in in pens year. The region's resistance groups. They claim that they are still fighting. Well the resistance in punchier. Is that now off. A insurgency ironically similar to how the taliban used to be previously the punchier valley is a geographically very difficult place to control. It's god valleys and ridges and no one had previously been able to take control of it. Not even the soviets during the occupation of aghanistan in the nineteen eighties. So the fact that the taliban claiming victory and they've been able to hoist their flag in the capital of punchier is significant but they don't entirely controlled into the whole region off the punt share valley. There are still some pockets of resistance. How pr conscious or pr. Savvy is the taliban. They published a video of of their flag. Being raised in punchier for example. Well they are very conscious now. They've understood the utility of new media as a deep irony here because they were so opposed to technology in the nineteen ninety s when they lost ruled the country that they banned any form offered. Now they see it as a propaganda vehicle to give them the oxygen of publicity and they want to try and control the narrative of very much. So there has to be a wider discussion also about social media companies and those that enable tied the taliban to run such an account. Which could actually end up being used for more nefarious purposes which were seen by the taliban when it comes to comes to this this kind of pr wash. What is the taliban's ryan chief. Well the taliban are trying to assert their ideology which is still very rigid and hasn't evolved from the nineteen ninety s. They keep talking about running national government Which is inclusive. But there's very little evidence off it you're already seeing the fact that they are taking control of the national news channels in afghanistan. They are using it to promote themselves. there was a very disturbing rally recently on afghan national television showing so the taliban suicide bomb squad and its victorious achievements in afghanistan. So you see. On the one hand the ideology you see the military strategy and then the other aspect is subverting. The rights of women increasingly women who were on afghan television channels are being taken off and being replaced by taliban men such an. You mentioned already. That puns ear has historically been an important center of resistance. Why is us. Wha what is it about this region specifically well. Let's go back to the time of the resistance against the soviets.

Against the taliban the punch valley was the heartland of resistance and opposition to foreign occupation whether it was the soviets or when it came to dealing with the taliban itself the the. Us never had a problem with the punch valley because of its relationship with the northern alliance but the problem has been that the resistance That was able to congregate. After the fall of the ashraf. Ghani government focused on punchier. It was led by mature masud son ahmed masud and then also by under lasalle the former vice president they managed to rally for a while but unfortunately their forces were limited and the valley was completely encircle and developed by the taliban you said earlier that resistance will continue in afghanistan. What do you expect from the years to come. Well this is going to be difficult to predict. Because the situation in many ways is unique to afghanistan the northern alliance previously had a stronghold in the north of the country in the nineteen ninety s. The taliban now have more control of a territory of ghanistan. They did in any previous capacity. But what we will see is protests emerge today already. There was a huge protests in kabul against the taliban against misogyny and against taliban supporters such as pakistan many afghans feel that the taliban would never been able to take aniston without the support of the pakistani military so protests off taking place and it is a demonstration of the civil society movement that has been created in afghanistan across the last twenty years of generation of guns on not happy at the situation and that may then lead to more violent outbursts. If the taliban continued to clamp down on these protests such thank you very much for that that was the llc surgeon. Goal and snow here is monaco's msel with the day's other news headlines.

He joins us from rome her. Tell us where the punchier valley is. And why it's significant paints you. Belly is kabul. it's a pretty small plays until recently it was a district not even a province and its significance permanently symbolic. It was the only place that held out true. The soviet invasion and taliban takeover of the country in the ninety now claimed they have taken over the last place that was considered to be unconquerable. Just because of the fact that geography lights people were very adamant to take their own self governance release. Who are the people there. I mean why have they been able to put up such a fight in the past. It is the home to admit trauma suit. The legendary aspen a guerilla fighter bruce to prominence during the war with the soviet union and then resistance against in in the nineties. He was killed right before nine. Eleven to a suicide attack orchestrated by alibi extensively as a gift to the taliban who were hosting When the us upon us on toppled the taliban garments a lot of people around amateur message board the main actors on demand fighters underground that were fighting a with the united states. That's interesting so the people in this picture valley and the fighters there were closely allied with the governments that have been in power since since the us invaded yes. That person was leading defied the recently the vp. vice president off the Last prison fanny. Who escaped the country and after prison. Lift country the vp. Who's from panjshir flipped to pasture and was involved in the resistance there so it was a bay important politically militarily and psychologically gordon talk it up as distancing the country so if the taliban takeover of this country valley is complete now that they control it. What's what's the practical significance of that. I think you just. They can claim complete control over the country. As long as parents show resistance to main those who wished to oppose taliban's could have possibly a the assistance tried to sprinters to other part of the country and challenged taliban control over the country. Taught about fancher. I think symbolically destroyed any hope Alabama may pat but residents audubon militarily. So so are you concerned that because the taliban now have the panjshir valley that they will be left open to certain kind of compromises in their government. I mean the whole reason. I personally hope there will be a peaceful solution to panshir and do not see the military takeover. That took place was. Because i was hoping that idea could be some sort of Government clues department could be held and people who were to hold out Present some constituencies honest on that opposed thought about maybe not all the constituencies but some of them but taught about unwillingness to accept anything but complete surrender and then as a result otherside diffusing to surrender and Talked about having to use military force to take over basically removed any need for negotiation and forming an inclusive government. Thought about may still choose to do it. And i think they should to make sure that there will be no This would not reemerge and that they can ensure internet legitimacy so they can receive the funds. They need to actually stop on economy from collapsing. They have this deal those concentrations but the israeli no nothing to negotiate over in the country left because they are in full control of the country. As all of this is happening of course the taliban appear to be moving closer to regional powers like pakistan and china. How do you read those moves by the taliban. And what do you think they spell for afghanistan so until very recently taught about a pattern bounce policy expressed the desire to have good relationship with all the countries united states many countries in europe and also iran india all those countries but recently been tilt towards pakistan china camp wad that means they see that as a strategic move to safeguard chinese investments in honest on. Make sure that they can salvage on economy true attracting chinese investment with regard to focus on. I think talk. Some china are kind of a package deal but also they strong obviously historical been taliban in pakistan pakistan hosted. The many taliban's have spent a lot of time impact on their families there and maybe this is not permanent. Maybe something that they're going to reverse a future time but the seems to be transferred in china which is going to push on towards isolation. And we'll get them involved in gregory that is emerging china united states but also alleviate india and russia on the regional players.

"When the former governor was here and the taliban was bench of group and they took over and then the us through came in two thousand and one i was in afghanistan. I have covered the war in tied my life and and then when i moved to a united kingdom is still Most of the time. I was in afghanistan covering the conflict zones since the taliban is thought that their activities then the isis game and all the came on swan to be honest. A cannot compare this cat in second situation with the past. The past was much much baiter. Basically veep ruled the country back to twenty five years back as more than that. Actually we destroyed everything so we started from zero. Went to under person we to the peak above the mountain and now back to the ground or even worse actually najibullah. You've done deeper getting on the taliban for years Many outside observers were surprised by how quickly the taliban took over territories and then the whole country. Did you anticipate how quickly that would go. Well the way they were like the. I know that government they didn't they didn't aim. Actually they didn't want to protect the country. They just let the entire province. For example without any fighting didn't fight against the taliban nowhere even in kabul. they didn't fight a bullet. They just leave in the end of the taliban in most of the city for example as example i gave you mazari sharif. The main town of the not. He falls the fall. The city fall like two hours before the taliban were actually taking over the city. Nobody was controlling. Nobody were in the city. Actually when the taliban came all the fighters just they just run elite to the olympic stan and so it countries they just leave the country without without doing anything actually and for that reason they have managed to get the entire country within eleven dates on on that point. What can you tell us about the resistance. In the punchier valley. Our understanding is it. This is the one area that the taliban had not yet captured. Well this is the area even in the russian also didn't manage to capture this. Is the area. No one can get even the taliban when they were empowered. In ninety day they couldn't get the fine share over. So this is the only hope for all other afghans but at the moment the taliban trying to be really nice with them. They are trying to have a negotiation. They trying to have them in the next Governor they think they're talking about so. Yeah picture could be for the taliban to be honest najibullah today with the understanding of isis k. And they're extremist capabilities. How much support do the taliban have among afghans. Are you able to set out. I don't think if they have any any support because the taliban are are trapped in between all these terrorist groups they never they never support actually ordinary people never support the terrorists groups. But sometimes they're hopeless. They have to for example if they come to a place or a guest house or asking the people to bring food they must because they're afraid of their life otherwise they don't support the taliban that they don't support anyone but yes but yeah they're more They are thinking. The taliban is better than the isis. Or ak forces. So this is what our believing. So and there's a lot of uncertainty about the taliban who are extensively in control. So whom are afghans looking to for protection. Yeah this is the only hope. They have at the moment but the son provinces for their neighbor of pakistan that all supporting Pakistan all scores on the isis because most of the isis fighters came from pakistan and they get support from the pakistani taliban as well they have a supply route. They can get anything From pakistan knowledgeable. You told us about the taxi driver. You offer two thousand dollars to take you to the airport and he refused. So what are your plans for getting out. I myself trapped inside couple. I don't know what i will do and some of my friends recommending If we can go some other safer provinces but we don't know where so at the moment i'm here and i want to see everything in my eyes than to be written self will happening next so far. I don't have any specific blind where to go to do so. Yeah i'm always among other afghans. I'm also trapped in couple najibullah. Qureshi is a correspondent for frontline on. Pbs is reporting from. Kabul will be featured in an hour long special report. That will air on tuesday october. Twelfth najibullah we thank you very much for your time. Please stay safe thank you. I'll come thanks a lot.

The biden administration is very publicly fighting a trump era policy that would require migrants from mexico to wait out there asylum cases there but at the same time. Us immigration officials are swiftly expelling dozens of migrants to mexico every day many of them asylum seekers in mexico. Authorities are doing the same thing at their southern border. The world's valencia has been reporting on this from the mexico guatemala border or he explain how the us and mexican governments have been undertaking. Actually these expedited removals. Well both the united states and mexico have been removing people in a matter of hours or days in the united states the biden administration is using an executive public health order called title forty two that basically just sites the pandemic to be able to take people into custody for matter of hours or days and then expel them into mexico. Be it overland across the border or on flights deep into central and southern mexico without any kind of procedure and many of these people are asylum applicants who under the law both in the us and mexico should at least have the right to petition. for asylum and ultimately there are winding up on the border with guatemala and many of them are from el salvador honduras and in some cases from farther away like haiti for example so are these policies in mexico in the us are they essentially identical. They are identical but they are not officially the same policy. Mexico has belabored the fact that mexico is a sovereign country and mexico creates an implements its own migration policies but they do look very similar. I spoke with abdel camargo. Who is an anthropologist. At the college of the southern border and the state of chiapas. Monica manuever. Korean camargo argument is that this policy is the latest in the recent history of the two countries in which mexico has become an extension of us migration policies. So they may not be officially cooperating but it certainly does look that way. So hey you spent a few days this week. And perhaps the most remote border outposts between mexico and guatemala. What does it look like. They're right now. what does it feel like. Yeah this is a place called l. sable which is a a tiny little town that barely exists on the map It's hot. it's humid it's mostly. Small stores that cater to locals. Who crossed the border to engage in commerce and a lot of farmers who live in the area and who tend to corn and bean field stats around the town. And did you meet their that really kind of captured. Some of the pressures many of these migrants must be facing well a lot of people and none of them were going through a positive situation because they were all quite lost. They didn't know where they were. They didn't know where they were being sent until they got there but at the same time they are regular people who they're friendly they. They might make jokes. They might even be flirtatious of. There was a woman who i met called. Bow duarte from honduras who to break the ice. When she saw me recording people she approaching. She asked me if.

"So before we go on so you densify like you were smart and you can speak languages but i already know people listening right right office. He's talking how no one is right. None read like vociferously. I definitely used to read a lot more than i do. I do now i. I'll be honest with you. But one of the things i did as very important is that i spoke to the people that were in these situations that were in these clinton's so also on what's interesting is that i was a a chess champion when i was a little kid so i went to four national now so i'm going to national titles but the the teachers that i had but chess were interesting. Because one of them was a dominican. Wet escaped the dictatorship to another one was an anti-castro cuban that had his own perspective on leading kuwa- who was an afro. Cuban who said listen. It's not as cut and dry if you think. No revolution could destroy racism No singular thing can achieve the destruction of a bastion of something like that which upholds western society which is racism which is in many ways masks classism because technically a capitalist and communist although they tend to front like they disagree on a lot of things at the end of the day they realized that there's no real middle class there are people who are workers and there are people who control the means of production. And when you control the means of production that's actually the defining point of your class. For example in america people would say someone who makes thirty thousand dollars a year and someone who makes three hundred thousand dollars a year or on the different class but technically they're both part of the worker class they do not control the means of their production and a pandemic stripped naked of those feelings. Because you realize that you were worth negative eight hundred thousand when you couldn't get that job and support payments but your house or your car all these other things and it really does speak volumes when you begin to realize that in this in this country you really don't have people used the phrase the last two often. Some people use that phrase so often that. If i took it away from them they lose half their vocabulary but the truth is that there is no real left so to speak in this country. There is a center right party. Which is the democratic party and joe biden central. Right dead center right party and no matter how many times you read biased articles from right-wingers. That say they're moving more to the left really in a global pandemic you know healthcare right but in many ways i think that these these struggles are played world stage without seeing them from the perspective of an indigenous person or an african person to say. Well what was the difference between communists or capitalists coming to take advantage of your natural resources and one place that we see. That naked now is in afghanistan and that's incredibly important because during the russian era. That's what they were there to do besides just propping up the the office of doctrine achieve. Which if you look him. Up was the president under the the government that other regime that was closer to russia or was backed by russia. And then you sat reagan and overthrew the taliban that literally what became a number one priority with for them was to secure the natural resources in afghanistan and now we see that famous. Cnn article that's floating around saying. Oh you know. I've is sitting on a trillion worth of a precious metals and one of those metals tungsten. The other natural resources would be lithium magnesium nickel copper all of these things that make incredible conductors and enable us to speak even on this phone. So i definitely don't know much about this whole afghanistan thing but i'm gonna tell you my theory based on and you tell me if i'm anywhere close okay. So reagan gave them gay. The taliban like basically arm the mujahideen became the taliban right. The taliban different mujahideen. The taliban are a splinter of what the mujahedeen rights because they moved to pakistan but out of that rut yet. But i think it's important to note the difference at I did a alive with lupe and we talked about this. The runs of that many of that must've been a jesus energy samurais. He was just talking to me. And we basically what we realize is that The the mujahedeen many of them were sunni muslims for those people of the islamic faith who understand this and also for those that. Don't they're several sex in his islam- the way that there aren't christianity and because iran is shia when they were escaping to iran. They were only offered You know menial labor jobs. Many of the women say they were forced into prostitution when they went to pakistan because pakistan was more sunni islamic. They offered the opportunity to get education to get loans from the bank to start their own businesses to attend college. Just just about anything that you could imagine a free society with being able to offer its people for price and whatever. The price is for that labor. It created some kind of advancement and economic and political stability and in that incubated the taliban who then returned and became kind of this ethnically tune group of people that said no we want to be the face about arniston whereas the northern alliance someplace in punchier valley where i visited one of many different sections of northern alliance. They never allowed to taliban into their valley even before america invaded there. And some things. I've been called a conspiracy theorist for some of the work that i do but i just want to review something very quickly my big three conspiracy theories back in two thousand three. When i released revolutionary volume two was that the government. I want to see if my theory is is alliance. I saw so please on a basic level feel lake. This jackass trump. I mean there was already jack asses before him but in the latest. He was like okay. We're going to get cool with yaw. So we're gonna free some of your prisoners and now we have this quote unquote peace deal but really. That was him. Brokering a deal where we're going to put the yawkey go back in power as long as you give us access to the resources there. We don't really give a fuck about afghanistan and it's people that even along the lines of possibly correct in your opinion. I think if you take trump out of the equation you'll see that that would be everybody's line bestow baucus trying to be well okay. Tell me about her bummy. 'cause i don't know well.

"Afghans, that'll be something that they take away too. Tell me about something that you have received lots of hard questions about all last week and over the weekend and today, which is the issue of safe passage out. Obviously, getting control of the airport, getting control of the tarmac, getting control of the runway, lining up these staging bases for onward movement as you were describing all of that. We've seen the military source systematically get that in order and we have simultaneously seen the number of evacuees rise to this incredible number of nearly 11,000 in one 24 hour period, just between Sunday and today. But there is still the front end issue of how people get themselves into that safe system. How people get into the airport, how not just Americans, but people linked to the U.S. government, people who are asking, vacuuming, so we are otherwise going to priorities. Prioritize how they're going to get out. Tell me about big picture progress toward making more safe that part of their journey. So there's a couple of pieces here. You might have heard me talk about this a little bit ago. We are in constant daily communication with Taliban leaders who are outside the airport. And we have been making it clear to them what their credentials look like. Who we want to see get through their checkpoints, who are absolutely entitled to get on these flights. And thus far, though there have been certainly cases of harassment and even violent harassment of some qualified individuals, by and large, these American citizens and the special immigrant Visa applicants are being able to work through those checkpoints. We are also in communication with the Taliban about making it easier for the safety of a more safe perimeter around the field so that there are fewer crowds because crowds have also been an impediment, not from violence perspective, just from a dense perspective. So we're working with them to try to make sure that there is enough access around the airport for people to get in more freely and we are working every day. Our commanders on the ground are pursuing opportunities to make access and passage to the field easier and safer for Americans in these SIV applicants, some pretty creative ideas that they're putting into place. And obviously it's a dangerous environment. We have a legitimate counter terrorism threat there, terrorism threat around the airport that we have to take seriously. But once we get them onto the field, then they go through a whole series of processing and manifesting as I said, medical screening, make sure they have food and water. And we try to get them on the very next flight out that's available. And these flights, at least yesterday, Rachel, they were leaving one almost every hour. Now we hope to be able to continue that sort of pace going forward. Obviously, it's weather dependent. It's population dependent. But that's the kind of that's the kind of throughput that we're trying to reach so that we can keep these numbers up for as long as possible. Should we expect to see more evacuations more transit to the airport aided by U.S. helicopters? Now you have talked about this a little bit at the end of last week and also today that there have been a couple of helicopter born U.S. U.S. facilitated movements. One from a group that was very close to the airport and now that was described as elsewhere in Kabul. Should we expect there to be more of those? That obviously seems like a sort of tidy answer to it from those of us looking from this distance, or is there something that's particularly dangerous about those helicopter airlifts that we don't understand? That means that that will continue to be quite limited. Well, the commanders on the ground certainly have the authorities they need to pursue opportunities to bring people in. And one of the means that they're disposal is of course rotary aircraft helicopters. And we have done that on a couple of occasions. I certainly wouldn't rule out that we would do it again. If it was the best way. And that's really what it comes down to Rachel's. What's the best most effective and what's the safest way to get Americans and other SIV applicants into the airport? And so again, sometimes helicopters are the answer. Sometimes not. And they're pursuing all kinds of different opportunities to make this happen. So I certainly wouldn't rule it out, but it is not the only way in which we are encouraging and trying to facilitate the safe passage of people into the airport. Let me ask you about one very different perspective on this, which is obviously we saw the Taliban takeover of the country almost every province in the country. In some cases, without firing a shot, including walking into Kabul without it having to be a military victory. It was essentially arranged, as far as we can tell. But there is resistance to The Pentagon. We have seen demonstrations. First by women by brave women in Kabul, then by larger groups of people in eastern Afghanistan and southeastern Afghanistan, we're now seeing organized resistance. Speaking out and getting some international press from the punchier valley, we saw anti Taliban fighters take back some parts of a different province over the weekend, although the Taliban now says they fought and brought those back. If there is significant resistance to Taliban rule, is the U.S. going to ignore that? Or is there provision in our post war planning to give assistance to those who are resisting Taliban rule and who are indeed maybe fighting them for control of parts of the country? Well, I certainly wouldn't get ahead of policy decisions that haven't been made on that Rachel. What I can tell you is that our presence there at the airport, the 5800 troops that we have right now, their focus is really on three things, making sure we can defend that airport and keep it there operations going. And then work in the evacuation mission to the maximum degree that we can. And then number three, making sure that we are as appropriate reaching out to American citizens who need to be brought in and finding out ways to do that. That's really what our focus is on right now and I think we have been very clear in the military mission is really confined to those three things. And I wouldn't want to speculate about what might be in the offing for the future. John Kirby, Pentagon press secretary, making the most of what has already been a very, very long day by staying up so late with us tonight, sir. Thank you for your time. I really appreciate it. Anytime you'd like to come back, we'd love to have you back. Thank you, Rachel, my pleasure. All right. We've got much more hetero tonight today with us. Hey, I just got a text from my sister.

"Along with all of our reporting on the pandemic. This is the world you've heard that the earth's ice is melting for sea ice in the arctic that means more of the oceans heat escapes into the air. See this looking like smoke coming. Basically because the ocean waters warmer than the atmosphere head with us to a lab in the far north to see some of that melting ice and learn. Why it matters coming up here on the world. I'm carol hills. this is the world. We're a co production of gbh and pr ex. When the taliban took control of afghanistan last weekend it also took over a lot of military hardware and weapons much of had been provided by the us. Here's pentagon spokesperson john. Kirby today. I don't have an exact inventory of what equipment the that the afghans had their disposal that that now might be at risk at risk of being used by the taliban for perspective on the problem we turn to jody vittori a retired air force officer who served in afghanistan. She leads georgetown's global politics and security program. We're not one hundred percent certain how much equipment that taliban of acquired because we haven't always taken terrific accountability of what equipment went wear at what time particularly when it came to small arms. We have a better idea with aircraft. And what is the situation with aircraft. That was left over. A number of american aircraft flew to pakistan and so did the of course the pilots in the aircrew associated with them but the taliban have captured some american made and other aircraft. We know that because they've showed pictures of them. Some of those aircraft were not operational at the time however and we do have reports that the taliban are looking for aircraft pilots and aircraft maintainers that might be able to get that back into the air. Is there a possible scenario where the taliban could coerce. Us trained pilots still in afghanistan to fly the remaining aircraft. Absolutely i could see plenty of possibilities of being able to coerce pilots. Fortunately not only threatening pals for their own lives but the lives of their families. We see continuing reports of the taliban for examples blacklists saying that if if certain people don't turn themselves into the taliban it will punish the families so there are certainly more than willing to do that. I can imagine it would be willing to do similar with pilots as well. And you know if you're the pilot and your family members are being threatened. That's that's a hard thing to turn down but bottom line. Somebody who served in the air force is your sense that the taliban don't instantly have an air force of their own. They need either other people or parts to make it work as they're going to need support of those former helicopter pilots and so forth that we're serving with the afghan national defense and security forces. But you know also remember. The taliban took over afghanistan without an air force air supports a nice to have for them. But it's not the need to have it was for the afghan national defense security forces. Do you know why afghanistan's aircraft were destroyed. When the taliban took control the capital i presume just because it happened so incredibly quickly. There just wasn't time to destroy all of those aircraft. It does take time to do that with explosives and so forth. Hopefully there weren't any deals made that Involved those aircraft. We don't really know what completely went on at this point with the various afghan senior leadership individual generals acting on their own initiative when it came to negotiating with the telephone. What about other hardware that. The taliban may now have how it's artillery machine guns and rifles night-vision goggles. How easy will it be. For the taliban to get these into the field and operational they should be relatively easy to get into the field and operational seen lots of pictures of them with us. Small arms for example enforce m16's already fighting. They've had long experience of using captured. Us western gear so they should be capable putting those into fight fairly quickly. It's interesting there already. Been protests in afghanistan. The taliban have been using violence to quell them over the weekend. The taliban said hundreds of its fighters were heading to the punchier valley where they're strong resistance. You think all these captured weapons will change the talibans approach to stifling dissent. I don't think it will change the taliban's approach to stifling dissent because the taliban have often been very willing to use violence to stifle descent their entire rain since they first came into being in since nineteen ninety four. What it does do is. It gives them additional capabilities. Just an overwhelming amount of potential weaponry that they can use to stifle that descent whether it's in individual small villages whether it's in cities or whether it's taking small arms and larger larger artillery pieces and so forth as much as they can given road networks and so forth up to places like the panjshir valley. Jody vittori is co chair of the global politics and security program at georgetown university. She was telling us about the weapons that the taliban have acquired from the afghan military. Thanks so much jodi. thank.

"The show we had nine turn on. Msnbc we're going to start tonight if we can. We are battling technical difficulties. But we're going to try to start tonight. live in kabul. It is five thirty in the morning. Tuesday morning right now in kabul. Nbc's chief foreign correspondent. Richard engel as you probably know. He has spent big portions of the last two decades of his life in afghanistan during the war. There richard also just weeks ago reported on some of the last fierce fighting by elite afghan commando units fighting against taliban forces. We know that was some of the last fighting like that. That there was in afghanistan and richard. Was there in the middle of it but now that the taliban have been able to take control of. I all the provincial capitals and then the whole country including kabul without fighting at all not in a military operation but just in what appears to have been a negotiated surrender by afghan government forces and the afghan military all over the country as the taliban have now walked in to kabul without firing a shot. Richard has been there reporting around the clock as they have taken over again. As i mentioned we have been battling technical difficulties as you might imagine for some obvious reasons. But i do believe we've got our dear friend. Richard engel now joining us live. Richard thank you. I'm sorry to have you up at this hour. Thank you no problem at all. Comes with the territory with your show seriously seriously. I have bad technical. Gremlins karma as you know from the very beginning richard. Let me just ask you how you are right now. What this last few days has been like for you with all that you've seen in kabul over the years and what you're expecting over the day that is newly donning right now where you stand. So the taliban are spreading their wings they are establishing more and more of their control. They're trying to establish a government. The first two days in power they were coming out of the woodwork. So to speak they were battling lueders because that that happened here there was a collapse of law and order when ashraf ghani. The president fled when all the police fled. Even local security guards fled. Anyone who wore uniform or had a gun was frightened that the taliban would come in think they were a soldier and attack them so that created a power. Vacuum cobble is not a small city. Millions of people here so the taliban have slowly out showing their presence. Battling looters trying to reestablish some degree of law and order because that's that's the taliban's main selling point they say they are the law and order candidates. They will be here to to to bring order to the streets severe order under islamic justice. We will see now that some order is being established. What happens next to will we start. Seeing the real taliban emerge will they start showing their their true colors so far. They've been saying nothing but positive things that they want to have peace and inclusion and that they are willing to work with some of the old members of the government but the taliban is is at its core a hardline fundamentalist organization a group. That believes this was a gift by god. it's victory and if you challenge them and people will start challenging them and people have been challenged them in other areas. It could get nasty very very quickly. So i think we're gonna see more and more of what. The taliban rule is really all about richard. I've been looking today at afghan news sources whenever i can to the extent that you can get them online and get machine translations and that sort of thing and i was struck by a bunch of reporting that i felt like i was saying from afghan news. Sources saying that. The taliban was asking local officials not like mayors or people any real position of power but local functionaries and local governments to keep doing what they usually do. Basically keep traffic moving. Keep basic services going and that they've told at least some media outlets to keep going with their normal programming that the taliban were going to interfere with with even news media broadcasts are are they trying to make. It seem like this is a sort of normal transfer of power between normal normal political groups that that is absolutely what they're saying but it it's it's hard to believe that that is the case already. We've seen some of the islamization creeping in. I've spoken to taliban leaders not in the last couple of days when they are bathing in this this post victory glow but they haven't changed their views on women haven't changed the ones i've spoken to anyway. Haven't changed. they still believe that they were right. That their victory here has proven that their path was the right one so they are telling people that to come back to work in the civil servants d to keep the traffic flowing and keep the garbage collected and the water purified but in northern afghanistan. You have to see what happened. In northern afghanistan fell before the south. They did the same thing they told people. Come out civil servants. Keep working no problem. They'll be there'd be no issues but as soon as those civil servants didn't obey. The taliban went house to house and said if you don't go back to work islamic justice justice will come down upon your head and on the media self-censorship already. They've taken women off of the media. They've been covering over signs. That showed women. Don't make up or any kind of subjective suggestive. Because they weren't that suggested to begin with but didn't that was remotely suggestive sexually. Suggestive has been taken down off the streets advertising things like that so as the taliban gets more and more confident they're often described as very arrogant and right now because if you if you believe a hundred thousand percent that your religious fundamentalist ideology is another one has been correct and that god has just rewarded you with victory over a great superpower because of your devotion that i'd ideology you get more more more overconfident. More more arrogant and so no. I'm not confident that these these calls for normality normal. Excuse me are going to continue. Yeah that will that. We may be seeing. We may be seeing it now but that will dissolve at first at first contact. I mean along those same lines as an extension of that. Same line of reasoning. I feel like there's a lot of armchair quarterbacking in the us and elsewhere right now about how afghanistan having now been inevitably taken over by the taliban the next stage is that will inevitably become a country engulfed in civil war again. What i what. I'm curious about wondering what you're seeing is who who is marshalling. Any force on the other side. I mean if the afghan army dissolved or cross sides to join the taliban. I mean is is anybody standing against. The taliban who ultimately is going to rise up and fight them so two people have formed an opposition. A former security chief. I'm real lasala and masud who was a warlord. His son have formed a bit of a resistance. Group in punchier valley. But that's that's about it. There was the was the old generation of warlords says. It's important to remember a little bit of this history so you had the warlords the mujahidin who were here they with the help pushed out the soviet union in the in the eighties and that was the they're sort of big moment and these warlords because they were able to push out the soviet union rose up they got a lot of clout. They became famous. They got a lot of momentum. And there's been talk..
