here without to have you with thoughts about the seventh eleven years ago the day the u.s. led war in afghanistan began over three thousand alliance ships have died in the conflict most of them americans far more afghan civilians have lost their lives to discuss the results of the. beijing i'm joined by international affairs commentator and manager of stop nato rick ross awful good to see there mr rudd's off the walls twelve was welcome by taliban statement claiming that nato forces are fleeing afghanistan in humiliation and disgrace do you agree. am defeat i think would probably be a better term this is as you remark you know the beginning of the two overseer of u.s. and nato involvement u.s. involvement circulate a little bit later in afghanistan which makes it the longest war in the history of the united states it's also the longest war in the history of afghanistan. and that
2:18 pm
precious little has been accomplished on the boss of sons of course for the western military intervention in our the patient in afghanistan. most or you know arguably the only accomplishment dubious as it is as i don't be in production of sky rocketed under the watch of the u.s. and nato in afghanistan but in terms of achieving any of the objectives that. the west claimed they they were going to accomplish in afghanistan it's been a signal failure of the tragedy for the go down be. now i mean we've seen relations between the u.s. and afghanistan that you voting in the cost few months with dozens foreign soldiers killed in a so-called inside at what's false the local chiefs to turn their guns against their mentors so to say. you know evidently the afghan people are not on developing foreign boots on the ground and you know particularly after such a long period of time the so-called green on blue attacks you allude to are an indication that the rank and file of the the afghan population would like to see us
2:19 pm
and their nato allies and the u.s. and their nato allies vacated the country x. this quickly as possible. just recently u.s. defense chief and leon panetta called on the afghan president to thank american troops rather than criticize them i mean he has a point doesn't a after all a lot of americans have died. over two thousand american troops have been killed the soldiers of the killed in another thousand from other nato countries or from nato partners of nations you know in fact and you know various honestly i'm proud of that statement is correct on the cards i ought to be grateful. to the united states and nato for profit propping. because government is unpopular is that as outside the capitol and even inside but in terms of the well being of the nation the afghan people have suffered not only indignities but you know bombing and helicopter gunships and you know unspeakable massacres of the sort that occurred in prague are brought in some markets where they certainly have nothing to be grateful
2:20 pm
to label for coalition troops said begun putting out of afghanistan but well the afghan people being left as many analysts predict with a bloody multi factional civil war well i mean the local forces be capable of taking over the fight against the taliban those are two questions a second one i seriously doubt that the u.s. and nato constructed afghan national army there's a nato program which will continue after two thousand and fourteen out of straw down the western troops called the nato training mission afghanistan nato doesn't intend to leave the country but whether the afghan national army was capable of providing security for the country i think is is highly questionable it is a matter of fact it's not even questionable they simply will not but we have to keep this in historical context as we're talking about anniversaries this is in fact a conflict occurring in afghanistan that began at least as early as nine hundred seventy eight with the united states operating out of pakistan to topple the
2:21 pm
government of afghanistan and to fight against the soviet allies and none of those . the barcode would have occurred in the first place out of nothing for the harder in the reagan administration straightened the war which you know they are separated out make and regional and other times she's inside the country and there's a mass and it's led to a twenty four year with the i'm sorry thirty four year old thirty four year war in afghanistan and we have to place the blame where it belongs you know this is the result of u.s. intervention going back to the late one nine hundred seventy s. . right just briefly on the last question for you president because i had. two in the future if he realizes he conquered with the taliban put american troops come back up to such a high profile withdrawal. i don't know that the american public has the stomach for that occurring first of all and any politician of this country barack obama these real are good or not true and if he takes his plays with such
2:22 pm
a move or whatever where afghanistan's future lies of course is a regional cooperation again working with its allies in the region to do to ensure security president hamid karzai attended the shanghai cooperation organization head of state summit. in beijing and join him and it's there with members and observers and other affiliates of the c.e.o. of assuring our corporation organization that they're going to stands real future logs the sooner the west for that region and that means pulling out of their bases engine down on bob graham is where i was out of other military bases and his backers because they're going to start and the sooner members of the shanghai cooperation organization and their affiliates which include. iran and afghanistan you know the sooner. the regional security plan can be put into place that's a very right they thank you very much international affairs commentator and manager

off stop in may to break iraq thank you for talking to our team. south korea has signed an agreement with the u.s. which allows it to possess missiles capable of reaching any part of north korea a previous arms pact with washington restricted souls' ability to develop or deploy long range rockets leaving many targets in the communist state out of reach all guests to be old and as a specialist from london it believes there are hidden motives behind this. this new range will take them into china that i think has been the sticking point as the villagers in the neck of the now agreed to in. june it was american election everything slew of elections from the south koreans want to get what they want to build any more capability for for their own actions in december which conceivably my thing more peaceful down. the satellite test few months
2:24 pm
ago that she had military implications because you facing the same sorts of rocket launches satellites you do this i'll. think of sort of past history i think this particular. spying as nothing very much to do with that satellite test it's just a problem on long discussions and both sides thinking this is a perfect time for electoral reasons to come to an agreement to extend a ballistic missile range there is a certain reason to talk for concern i mean all of us are hung around them there is another stage and things that basic isn't really thinking makes any any appreciable difference in the balance of sounds of power in east asia honestly in americans favor in south korea's favor north korea is days and weeks in military terms in
2:25 pm
