16 Years of War, 16 Years of Shame
The United States’ war against the people of Afghanistan is now the longest foreign war in this country’s history. October marks the 16th anniversary of that war, and Donald Trump has already introduced a troop surge and has promised even more troops and advisers on the ground.
U.S bombs do not bring peace or justice, only death and destruction. Our troops have no place in Afghanistan. We demand an end to this racist, illegal, and deadly imperialist war!
