The Pentagon’s record in Afghanistan provides iron-clad evidence that war does not work. Nor does provocation and endless escalation. It’s all a con to maintain the profits of the US munitions and weapons industries. We have ceased being a Representative Democracy. We now stand revealed as a Corporate Militocracy.

Invasion of Afghanistan was a major strategic error. This was further compounded by the increasing amounts of troops that were added.
This nation must not continue to compound the strategic errors. Time to get out!

The U.S should not be escalating the war in Afghanistan – no more blood and treasure should be spilled. No more drone assassinations that create more enemies and more blowback attacks.

The invasion of Afghanistan was based on a lie, just as was the invasion of Iraq.
Bush said the Taliban were harboring terrorists. In reality, Mullah offered to turn Osama Bin Laden over to a third neutral country for a trial by an Islamic court. That offer conforms to international law. Bush refused, and invaded to overthrow the Taliban. The Taliban had come into existence to stop the rape of women, and did so. They also stopped the growing of opium poppies and the rape of little boys by pedophile warlords. Under the US rule, women are raped, Afghanistan exports 90% of the world’s opium, and two US Marines were court marshaled for trying to help the little boys being raped by a US ally warlord! The US should get out and give the country back to its rightful government–the Taliban.

I am an lifetime affiliate member of Veterans for Peace, and a longtime antiwar/pro-peace activist. For 3 years I served on the Afghanistan working group of UFPJ, and I organized the first (to my knowledge) protest of Obama’s troop escalation in Afghanistan in March 2009. High time to re-focus on Afghanistan.

The people of Afghanistan did nothing to the US but they’ve lived with war by the US for 16 years and before that with Russia and before that was it the UK? These poor people need peace. War has only killed many innocents and made life miserable for all.
