Newsnight is the BBC’s flagship information and present affairs TV programme – with evaluation, debate, exclusives, and sturdy interviews.
Mention 9/11 at the beginning of an Afghan war documentary and the rest is likely BS too. Classic modern BBC.
Stoltenberg should resign if he were any kind of decent individual.
Western countries still continuing to cause chaos and destruction in countries they have no business being in. Going into these countries with imperialist mindsets and a messiah complex, only to leave when the fire gets too hot for them.
If only there was a way to accurately calculate the violence, death and overall effects of these actions.
So much for "shock and awe"
The lesson to learn is History repeats itself. Stop trying to change regimes.
USA has a terrible reputation trying to achieve this, look at Iraq, Lybia, Vietnam and Afganistan.
Lord Dannets comments have aged spectacularly badly
To the future YouTube viewer in years to come – this is what western imperialism looked like in 2021.
Not a single “real” Afghan on the panel. I’m sure if you asked them, they’d have a different view.
The BBC are responsible for all of this
They have been the single biggest recruiter of Taliban due to their uneven coverage
At last, a voice of sense and reason – Rory Stewart. If only he was listened to years ago, if only, if only….. 😢😢😢
Uk £30 billion wasted, Germany £20 billion wasted and US 110 Billion, wasted…..
Mike pompeo was on the news this morning saying that the afgan government was involved in the talks, he said they were there in the room as was he. It seems the BBC is telling lies again 🙄
They really should have taken over an airbase and got rid of the most violent part of them along with bin laden and left.
Something tells me massive profits were made in war here.
Terrible for all the people killed.
Disagree that they wanted to live under the taliban, the army folded within days. There must be support for them they were armed and trained so why not fight if they hate the taliban??
The guy in the blue jacket literally stated "It has been a relatively lost cost intervention for the US". Seriously? 2.2 Trillion dollars is low cost? 2,442 US military dead, 20,666 wounded? Low cost? What a moron. People like this live in a fantasy world.
Taliban has a friendly photo orderly taken than the US insurrection at the US capital where the Federated Flags are placed & people stand on top of the table shouting & screaming !Hmmmm , we could be mistaken which country with which?
Guests are clueless.
A week is a long time in politics, and a very long time in wartime.
Basically everyone in Afghanistan had their hands out for money to survive regardless of which side or how it was coming. I say we walk away all aid and all money if they want something they can pay for it
What went wrong ? it was next door to Pakistan thats what .
And when they are told, "Do not spread corruption on earth," they answer, "We are but improving things!"
Al-Baqarah – The Cow – 2:11 (Sura: 2, Verse: 11)
The Media, as usual, are tone deaf to the reality of Afghanistan, Pakistan & the entire region, they display the same tone deafness towards their own people, now.
What went wrong? LOL, go re-read the documents Assange released a few years ago. it showed exactly what we r seeing today.
Foreign powers trying to control Afghanistan is what "went wrong."
16.08.21. Are the words of the general still valid?
Hahaha, what a farcical council of imperial fancy this was!!! You destroyed Afghanistan for 50 years, conditions for women have never even approached what they were in the 1979s, you armed these reactionary cutthroats, the fact that the Taliban is now popular outside of the tiny middle class you built it testament to how bad the occupation was. Even the Hazara support the Pashtun Taliban as your Dostum buddy was so brutal. Save your crocodile tears for the gullible.
Wow, the tone of this video is so out of touch. 0:55 "Western leaders were not in a mood to let anarchy and warlords reign?" Really? They'll create anarchy and warlords whenever doing so supports their agendas. Were these same militants not initially supported and funded by Western powers in the hopes of disrupting the Soviet Union? Has the West not been supplying militants in all the years that followed? Would they even still be in a state of anarchy if not for our meddling? We are not the heroes here, don't you dare try to sell it as such.
The better question would be: What did not go wrong there? That list would be extremely shorter.
So out of date just one week later.
The UK should never have even been in Iraq or Afghanistan.
1 week later and Lord Douchebag was wrong
oh you gave them backbon allright sir .gave tem big boner in there back
These delusional so-called Western experts trying to change a country which never wanted change in the first place. No wonder GB, USA and NATO are in the shit because of these dumb idiots.
Nothing went wrong in Afghanistan. But all ent wrong in the West. The West is too blind to see any fault in their own system and mentality, but way too eager to pick faults in other’s homeland
