Personally, I think the idea of US having bases in Afghanistan from now into eternity is a really bad idea but tell me again who are our allies supposed to be? Maybe this should be another wake up call to what countries think they have long term interest in not letting Afghanistan control its own future?
The United States’ decision to set up six permanent military bases in Afghanistan will be the focus of talks when the presidents of Pakistan, Iran and Afghanistan meet in Tehran on June 25, an official told The Express Tribune on Friday.
Dreams – thankfully – no nothing of borders and reach from mind to mind with a swiftness that defies miles between the dreamers.
We Will Rise
We will rise like a bird in the blue sky of Afghanistan to bring peace
We will shine like a star in the dark sky of Afghanistan to bring brightness
We will rise like a sun to cover the darkness
We will stand like a stable mountain to reach our goals
We will plant like a gardener to raise our children
We will fall like a drop of rain to water our homeland
We will raise our hands to accomplish our dreams
1939-1945 – that’s almost 6 years to fight an actual world war. 2001-2011 US and allied nations fighting in Afghanistan. Something wrong with this picture? Read what this former elected official in Germany has to say after visiting/researching Afghanistan since 1980. Maybe has has learned something that Americans, as well as Germans need to know.
Why Germany Must End its Deployment in Afghanistan
A Commentary by Jürgen Todenhöfer
The first lie says we’re there to fight international terrorism.
The second lie is that we’re there to defend our civilization’s values.
The third lie is that we prioritize civilian reconstruction over military activities.
The fourth lie is that we’re in the Hindu Kush to prevent the return of the Taliban for good.
Regardless of what your intentions are – the result is that children die and are maimed. Time to stop – no?
A UN report on children and armed conflict in Afghanistan makes very sad reading. It shows, for example, how children have been used by anti-government elements for suicide bombings and planting explosives, or recruited to the Afghan National Security Forces, despite official government policy banning such practices.
The report also sheds light on the detention of children for alleged association with armed groups, on the number of children killed or maimed by suicide attacks and on sexual violence committed by armed groups against boys and girls.
It will not be pretty but we should be trying to get everyone to the table, as we should in Israel/Palestine too.
A glance at the conflict in Afghanistan
US policy questioned by academics and researchers
The following letter was sent today to the President of the United States by a group of academics, journalists and NGO workers:
we ask you to sanction and support a direct dialogue and negotiation with the Afghan Taliban leadership residing in Pakistan.
discussions about Afghanistan’s political future must include all parties and not just be a quick-fix deal with members of the insurgency.
It is time to implement an alternative strategy that would allow the United States to exit Afghanistan while safeguarding its legitimate security interests.
Dictatorship is good. If the Dictator is me.
