We are never leaving Afghanistan

Antiwar.com
by Justin Raimondo

11/22/13

Rather than ending the war, the Obama-Karzai pact institutionalizes it, making the occupation of Afghanistan a permanent feature of US military operations in the region. It even maps out a place for this new US colony in the annual budget, and there is no time limit on any of this: '2024 and beyond.' The agreement means we?ll be in Afghanistan forever, obligated to not only defend its government but to make sure that government is functioning at a bare minimum...

America s Afghan Victims

By Bob Dreyfuss and Nick Turse

When an American soldier dies in Afghanistan, his death is not anonymous. But when an Afghan dies in the war-especially an Afghan civilian death is rarely noticed by the outside world. Often, it s not even recorded by Afghan hospitals or morgues.

Francis Boyle: The Illegality and Evil of the War on Afganistan

I want to start out with my basic thesis that the Bush administration s war against Afghanistan cannot be justified on the facts or the law. It is clearly illegal. It constitutes armed aggression. It is creating a humanitarian catastrophe for the people of Afghanistan.

The Phony Pullout From Afghanistan

Fight For the Yankee Dollar

By Eric Margolis

The ongoing US stealth occupation of Afghanistan will be enshrined by a new US-Afghanistan security treaty (read 1930 Anglo-Iraq Treaty), another deal between puppet and string-puller, made respectable by rigged elections and bribed chieftains and a big dose of drug money.

The war in Afghanistan has been lost. Why are we still there?

Beaufort Observer
by staff

09/11/13

Never have so many given so much, for so little. And they call it Enduring Freedom. That is the Barack Obama legacy in Afghanistan. More Americans have died in the awful place since Obama promised to end that war than have died under any other president. Ponder that statement. And then ask yourself if George W. Bush, or any Republican for that matter, had the same record what would the Elite Media in this country be doing?

Most of us cannot understand the pain associated with post-traumatic stress in any visceral way, as described by this recent veteran from the Iraq War: 'My mind is a wasteland, filled with visions of incredible horror, unceasing depression, and crippling anxiety.'
