How Chaos In Afghanistan Emboldened Terrorism - burst 1

"Chaos in afghanistan upton as president biden withdrew military forces leading to a forceful takeover by the taliban today august seventeenth. We will dive into one of the greatest foreign policy. The buckles in modern history. Good afternoon. i'm meeting. Kim and this is the outspoken oma quote. Joe biden has been wrong on nearly every major foreign policy national security issue over the past four decades and quote. Who said that not trump not a partisan congressmen or republican operative. That was robert gates. The former secretary of defense under president obama for three years and today as we see significant foreign policy the buckle unfolds in afghanistan that quote is once again reaffirmed now quickly dive into some basic background information as to what is transpiring in afghanistan back in mid april president biden announced immediate withdrawal all american troops from afghanistan by september eleventh. Twenty twenty one. Obviously september eleven was chosen dates because that was to recognize the anniversary of the september eleventh terrorist attacks and which led to the immediate was occupation of afghanistan because at the time afghanistan was harboring osama bin laden on august fifteenth. The taliban took over the capital of kabul effectively toppling. Afghanistan's governments later afghan. President ghani fled the country right before taliban leadership storm the presidential palace and thousands of afghan citizens fled to kabul international airport to skip the taliban. Now while oldest was transpiring. President biden was in camp david and he was strong criticized because he didn't have a strong message or strong immediate message in response to all of this so he traveled back to washington. Dc to address the nation from the white house one of the biggest elements that he was criticized for in the speech was the blame game in which he played and one of the obviously notable people in which she blames forwarded the buckle in afghanistan was trump and sort of implied some blame to bush and obama. He said quote when i came into office. I inherited deal that president trump negotiated with taliban on the his agreement. Us forces would be out of afghanistan. May i twenty twenty one. Just a little over three months after i took office. Us forces had already drawn down during trump administration from roughly fifteen thousand five hundred american force to two thousand five hundred troops in country. The taliban was strongest militarily. Since two dozen one the choice i had to make as your president was added to follow through on that agreement or be prepared to go back to fighting the taliban in the middle of the spring fighting season and quote. And but if you actually look at the deal that trump's state department may with taliban it's not what biden actually described in his address at a nation. Mike pompeo who was secretary of state under president trump said in a recent interview that the deal of the taliban was strictly conditional which meant that deal was was strictly predicated on the taliban committing to a peaceful transfer of power in order for america to withdraw after that commitment to a peaceful transfer of power appel said in a recent interview quote we would have demanded the taliban actually deliver on the conditions that we let out in the agreement including the agreement to engage in meaningful power sharing agreement some that which we struggled to get them to do but made it clear it was going to be required before we completed requirements to fulfil foley withdrawal and unquote. And you know there are some criticisms of the deal. Mike pompeo made with the taliban. Obviously the taliban actually pursuing a peaceful transfer of power from the afghan government was not going to happen. I mean we actually thought. That was being overly idealistic. So people had that criticism upon pales deal but even if biden did not agree with the policy that trump's state departments made in efforts to come to some sort of consensus with the taliban he kind of reversed it. I mean he was president for seven months. Which meant that. He'd independence day department and independence defense department and he could have used his powers as the chief executive to to reverse a deal that the previous administration made i mean for his entire time as president of the united states reversed nearly every single policy. That trump did while he was president. So this is no exception. I mean he should own up to the flaws of the policies in which he tried to pursue in addition to to trump he also blamed the afghan military. He said quote. The truth is but this did on for the more quickly than we had anticipated. So what happened. Afghanistan political leader escape up and fled the country the afghan military collapse. Sometimes we're not trying to fight if anything developments at the past week reinforced the ending. Us military involvement in afghanistan. No was the right decision. American troops cannot ensure not be fighting a war and dying in award. Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves and quotes. This is honestly one of the most politically cynical things that i've ever heard biden say the afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves. Fifty thousand afghan military soldiers died in darndest entire two decades of us occupation of afghanistan. And the reason why they cannot successively defend themselves against the taliban was because biden himself pulled out a contractors and basically destroyed the afghans dependency on us military which are obviously undermined the ability of afghan military to counter act opposing taliban forces. According to the wall street journal quote in the wake of president biden's withdrawal decision the us pulled its airports air support intelligence and contractors servicing afghanistan planes and helicopters. This meant that afghan military simply cannot operate anymore and quote. Admittedly afghan leadership was significantly underprepared in the wake of the draw because as by afghan officials did not believe america will draw however according to andrew watkins a senior analyst for afghanistan and at the international prizes group research advocacy organization. There was no evidence that the taliban significantly increased their manpower and argue. The only reason why there's summer offensive was successful was due to a lack of us. Air strikes which meant that biden's administration shorter significant blame for the dismantling of the afghan government. What biden actually expect to happen when he pulled the entire the tire. Us presence from afghanistan if the afghan military dependent so much on the us occupation of afghan for the viability of their own independent military force. Then of course when they pulled out of afghanistan. The afghan military by itself was not sufficient enough to defend against the taliban if you're pulling out intelligence contracts that were vital for the dependency of the afghan military than have military is expected to fall when the taliban was advancing to the nation's capital and one of the other things that addition to buy actually blaming everyone except for himself for the marco afghanistan biden also discussed casualties in the in the afghan occupation. He said quote. Lemme ask those who wanted to wanted us to stay. How many more how. Many thousands more of american daughters and sons are willing to risk and quotes according to abc news. There's not been a single american combat death since february eighth twenty which was eighteen months ago. That's not to belittle the two thousand three hundred twelve american soldiers that lost life in afghanistan. But it is the suggests that thousands of stationed american soldiers in the lead up to the afghanistan pull out were not being bogged down by precipitous warfare in combat honestly by contrast more than fifty one thousand taliban fighters were killed by american armed forces which shows a major power imbalance in military superiority between taliban in american forces but aside from that by reportedly sent five thousand additional troops back in afghanistan to aid withdrawal despite his call for not putting sons and daughters at risk he just said that it was egregious to put american sons and daughters at risk for filled mission. So what is different about the five thousand additional troops. He sending back into afghanistan. Aren't those sons and daughters. Also at risk and to add insult injury tens of thousands of american citizens have been left behind it in afghanistan in the withdrawal according to the washington according to wall street journal an estimated ten thousand fifteen thousand new citizens remained in afghanistan so yes it is tragic. Every single american soldier died in. afghanistan is a tragedy. No one is disputing dance but suggests that afghanistan was a present danger to the current military soldiers. There from february twenty is simply not true and biden. Really closer to speech with i think when idiotic things that he said in his entire speech close with kohl's diplomacy he said quote. We will continue to support the afghan people we will lead before. Diplomacy or international influence in or humanitarian aid will continue to push for regional diplomacy and engaging prevent violence and instability will continue to speak out for the basic rights at the afghan people of women and girls just as we speak all around the world and quote and my question is just how. How can you negotiate with radical barbaric terrorist group that subject it's ethnic religious and gender minorities to brutal torture and murder. How can you negotiate with democratic for cystic regime. That is responsible for thousands of american lives. I mean honestly gonna ask nicely are gonna get on your knees and begged them to treat the afghanistan woman fairly. I mean i don't understand why biden continues to believe that's diplomacy instead of for actually using military forces is the correct way to go and this brings us back to. What was this for honestly at the end of the day with withdrawn. Us military forces from afghanistan he effectively reversed two decades of foreign policy and the initial mission of counter terrorism and preventing a staging ground for al-qaeda according to the pentagon united states government has been eighty three billion dollars in bolstering the afghanistan government and which is effectively gone to waste. I mean we spend easily billion dollars to bolster an afghan military but the afghan military is so reliance on the american forces to to help them to secure them. But when the american forces are removed from the afghan military to aid them than the billion dollar investment goes down the drain and now according to you defense and state department officials six billion dollars in military equipment including eight hundred fifty mine-resistant ambushed protected vehicles were abandoned in withdrawal which six billion dollars in. Us military equipment is now in the hands of taliban and other terrorist organizations additionally chairman of the joint chiefs of staff mark milley addressed congressional leaders and said that they will move the terrorist threats in afghanistan from medium according to axios which meant that. Obviously you're going to see a rise in terrorism and afghanistan and now that the taliban effectively controls its governments and to add insult injury the inside reports that taliban militants released thousands of prisoners from afghan prisons with links to islamic jihadist groups and al qaeda. So what has changed in the past two decades. We've tried to counter terrorism. We tried to decrease the the influence of kind of effectively imprisoning or killing al qaeda militants. We tried to decrease the the power of the taliban and we tried to effectively counteract attacks by the islamic jihadist groups. But it seems to me after this withdrawal after the dust settled what is going to be. The state of afghanistan will be similar to the state of afghanistan when we first invaded and his brings me to a new york times article which discussed heavier mackey. Who was a former first class army. Special forces soldier with several afghanistan deployments and will shot twice and he said in an interview with the new york times quote. I sacrificed a lot. I saw death every day every year. And the guys. I soaked with new would probably come to an end like this. But the chaos and made his andre after everything we gave. I just wish that had been away to leave. With honor and quote for people like mackey. There is a question that rang in numerous veterans. What was it for the situation. Afghanistan has become similar to america. I evaded two decades ago. All the bloodshed in lives lost in pursuit of counter-terrorism only define the terrorism revitalize. This president has trade the continuing efforts of veterans and committed a damaging dereliction of duty as commander in chief of the armed forces is devastating.

"Twenty six billion dollars and all these facilities they need cash flow on these things they were going to have about six hundred thousand visitors during those two weeks of the games and the eleven thousand athletes plus you know it's just going to be a delay of a year it's going to be challenging sure but not nearly the challenge that the four hundred and twenty one thousand people and counting around the world are coping with their infections with the corona virus and the sign of relief is Japan doesn't have to host the games and make all those answers answer all those questions about why are you holding a games at a time when the world is either still suffering from this epidemic or just coming out of it so it's it's actually a good thing the only be an economic cost not nearly as much to Japan as a cancellation but an economic cost that Goldman Sachs puts in about six billion dollars not the sixty billion in direct and indirect costs that could have come down the pike to Japan and its economy if the games have been already canceled what else would you point to Steven when you talk about the economic fallout that may just give us a bit of a better sense of where policy makers are at in terms of trying to protect the Japanese economy well I mean the Japanese economy was already in trouble ahead of this crown of virus outbreak because of the global trade situation and the issues of South Korea and and of course the global trade war but you know the games were expected to give up a boost of course to the Japanese economy it that's going to be delayed okay I think the baseline best case scenario perhaps would be the beginning of a recovery by the third quarter but the it's it's still pretty much an unforeseen outlook right now because we don't know when this epidemic is going to hit its apex and start improving we didn't get it in the last hour or two Hey I got an email from moody's and they put out a statement saying although the direct economic and fiscal impact of the postponement of the Olympics is dwarfed by the wider fallout from the global corona virus outbreak the postponement will hit business and consumer sentiment further straining investment and consumption through the first half of twenty twenty so that's where we need to go through the first half of twenty twenty get this pain out of the way and then we examine the whole issue fave greatest fear thanks for that that's our chief north Asia correspondent Stephen Engle of X. three M. say they are accelerating production.

S. and European companies well certainly for the U. as we all knew that the the year and your numbers are gonna be very strong and of course it all comes down at that point to house big the surprises worse of the surprises were above average so companies as they are generally do did better than expected but it gave us a reasonably decent year on your comp yeah if you exclude semiconductors and energy this kind of ignoring all the bad stuff but corner liner engines okay I think what's really going to matter for the market though is whether or not the expectations that we have for next year when the calm start to look a lot more supported if they're able to stay in place or whether we see analysts revising the numbers stand now there's reason to believe they'll actually be revising them up because they're in the forward guidance that we caught out of companies this quarter which the best we've seen in a year so there is reason to believe that guidance will turn into writing learning testament and that should translate into rising prices typically those that cannot be right some market sometimes down we have twenty two are of chemical genitive the comes in this program quite often and he's always kids points out that when you cut estimates of the end of the year going into the following year typically that means that the following year can be quite a good year it can outperform and vice versa it sounds counter intuitive but of course the lowering the bar to be ultimately in the year ahead we make that dynamic down well that's certainly part of the game that's played between the analyst community and the the CEOs and CIOS of the companies you know ultimately it should be about what actual growth is as opposed to whether you've beaten expectations are not but the comparison of the forward earnings guidance that I talked about is looking at the third quarter this year versus our quarter last year so that should take into account any kind of seasonality if you will about given the numbers towards the end of the year so we think at this point you've got a modestly supported environment for equities we have very modest expectations for returns next year but we think that's going to be the lover as to whether or not we can't continue to see new highs in twenty twenty is whether not even those modest numbers actually materialize can we talk about what your expectations are for next year we have how would ward of Kay Bailey funds on the program around about an hour ago he's looking for something like five to seven percent earnings growth in the United States three twenty twenty down what do you come down on that what consensus estimates currently average out around that number of probably maybe a little bit higher so then it comes down to what do you think happens to the multiple because if you get that earnings growth in the multiple doesn't move and roughly speaking that should be your price return plus you get a bit the dividends I think we do need to think about the weather the current multiple on the SP five hundred is really sustainable we know it's above average about seventeen and a half times services along with average of about fifteen and a half now you can argue and I would that with low interest rates supported central bank low inflation the market is justified to trade on a slightly higher multiple but a full a full two points higher is debatable so I think we need to contemplate maybe giving that earnings growth but at the same time ever compression the multiples of that translates into market appreciation that's a bit less than you hoped for so Dan of the last five weeks the market seems to have changed its tax from one of the more defensive outlook utilities reads consumer staples to maybe a little bit more risk on and feel are you comfortable with that pivot that we've seen over last month or so what you're absolutely right to losing huge sector rotation I would argue it's driven this is not necessarily by defensive verses offensive allocation but more what happened with US treasuries because we had such a last week a twenty basis point move in treasuries in a week that's a lot we know that that was driven primarily by optimism on the trade deal so clearly can go away with a tweet but it's the movement in yields and the attractiveness of high dividend yielding equities verses government bonds that we think is really behind the sector rotation so if treasury yields get moved back up towards two percent I think you're gonna continue to see weakness and utilities are real estate because you don't need to take that equity risk as much anymore to get the income but conversely if there's any kind of growth concerns or trade goes off the rails again everything's going to go back to work Denmark's is that some of the year isn't ever looking at the twenty twenty were trying to establish with a big consensus calls out the conviction Cole was among the guests to come on this program Dennis talk about them what are yours what we're overweight equities into next year but looking at emerging markets actually I did continuing to outperform they have more recently so for the your current events lacked a so this might be a moment if we do get progress on trade the and also the fact that the US is done so well for so long I think it is reasonable to expect that he and I have some room to catch up so I think that's one thing that we're looking for and then the potential and this is an action allocation yet but the potential for Japan to turn around it's been a huge disappointment this year expectations of fallen dramatically so maybe it's at a point that it really can't disappoint anymore and there's a potential for some months on given that kind of as he always seem to be Japanese equity for cheap I doubt was going to catch up with you you and I got back a long way and it's always great to get your insight on this program to MRS BMP power by senior

"News comments and insights from epinions worldwide team of editors and columnists I'm Jim also coming up on the show white anti trust problems are just the start for big ten plus how taxing robots is a great way to make people for but first the defense department recently sent lawmakers a list of about three point six billion dollars in military construction projects that would be deferred to pay for president trump's wall Bloomberg opinions editorial board writes that quote the diversion of Pentagon construction money defies Congress and hurts military readiness while accomplishing nothing opinion editor James give the is here to tell us why so we've learned that part of the money for the president's wall is coming from the military what projects is it coming from well coming from about one billion dollars worth of different projects there's three point six billion dollars military construction projects that comes on top of about six hundred million the ministration is taken from the treasury department's forfeiture funds and another two point five billion dollars in Pentagon funding from other areas and it's coming from everything from you know rebuilding storage bunkers for ammunition and extending runways and updating the infrastructure for the militia minute man three ballistic missile in a training and equipping the Afghan security forces dismantling chemical weapons there's a whole range of things and it's got a lot of people up in arms reason James who decided where the money would come from specifically I think the Pentagon put together a list based on what he had planned and what he thought it could do for her or not two they are asking Congress to back fill and we fund these things and Congress is unlikely to do that in fact some of the Democrats in Congress have already said that they're going to fight this tooth and nail both because they think it's bad for the nation's defense and also because it takes power away from Congress that was granted to it by the constitution isn't this battle already in the courts it has been in the courts and at what happened is that the courts have said that trump has a right to reprogram money but it's not clear whether or not to the ministration can be able to do what it wants with all the money that it's trying to take because here you have a situation where the president went to Congress for the wall and Congress said no except for this amount and so he's going around them so the argument is being made that he is going around Congress is specific powers right and. and and what could be done is is the waves abled and run this was by declaring a national emergency in February that the situation the borders natural national emergency and and that's the rationalization for his ability redirect fun. so Congress is going to have to Congress can step in and say look we're gonna pass a law that says you cannot use any of the funds that we want to prepare for the Pentagon. these purposes and that could be have a kind of close the door on this thing happen in the future in the future but there's nothing to to have that retroactive right well it may be that the Pentagon starts singing a different tune when they realize that Congress is not going to back fill a lot of these requests that they're going to have to be deferred I think the important thing to remember is that. what trump is building a is not going to solve the problems that he wants to solve it for example you look at what's happened to border with the asylum seekers the sound figures are trying to sneak in there try to present themselves. be considered for silent hill walls not gonna do anything there. with the effort to stop drugs from poor infinite stakes Sentinel is not being modeled over the walls being smuggled. the postal system into ports of entry is any part of this. a danger to military readiness or national security or is it just up keep that we're talking about that's being diverted. well I think it is a danger that if you're doing things like. you know diminishing the reading is of of the Minuteman three ballistic missile system if you were you discomfiting allies because basically what you're doing is you're taking money that that they were counting on to build their deterrence. in Europe for example. resident is going to take away about seven million dollars in money that was allocated to upgrade US and NATO bases in Europe in part to deter Russia after takeover of Crimea so you know there's both the immediate impact on the ability of US forces to do their job and then there's the impact on relations with allies and elsewhere I think in both cases it's it's not good for the nation's defense he wants to have a physical barrier he wants a Berrier covering as much as two thousand mile border. he can and you know when all is said and done I think that's just going to be an expensive monument to yell intolerance and not effective in protecting the border from the country challenges the border faces thanks James that's James give me an editor.
