Malalai Joya: "it is almost as if the Taliban was still in power. After the war, the U.S. brought to power these misogynist warlords called the Northern Alliance, who are just like the Taliban. These were the same people who ruled between 1992 and 1996".

Thannxnx... one is never sure what deck of cards one will receive in this game of war... what one may win on the swings... you may looooooooose on the roundabouts... this country needs to take up the responsibility of their own leadership which is poorly lacking due to corruption... One cannot always blame the Americans for their weaknesses... they need to live up to their convictions and admit the error of their ways...

The REAL voice of Afghanistan, seldom heard in this country:

"WHAT HAS been your experience here in the U.S. as your speaking tour gets underway?

THERE IS a lot of support among people who have come to the meetings. People in the U.S. haven't been told the correct story through the media. They're told that Iraq was the bad war, and that Afghanistan is the good war. When they hear about the suffering of my people, some people cry--some have come up and hugged me and shown their support.

This isn't my first trip to the U.S. When I was here earlier, I met a group of mothers who lost their sons in Afghanistan. They, too, hugged me and cried. Sometimes, people apologize for what their government is doing to my people. And I reply to them that they should not apologize, because it is their government that is responsible for this, and the government should apologize to them for its war crimes.

I have also come across rich Afghans--people who are enjoying their lives here in the U.S. They support the occupation and claim that the U.S. is bringing democracy and freedom to Afghanistan. They are wrong, and they don't know what is really happening in Afghanistan. There are also some corrupt NGOs that support the occupation because they don't want to lose their contracts and their projects. But most of the people at the meetings support the cause of my people.

My main message to the democratic people of the U.S. is that you are not the same as your government. You can support the Afghan people and ask Obama to do four things.
First, end the occupation immediately--this is not a war on terror, this is a war on innocent civilians.
Second, Obama must apologize to my people and deliver Bush to the International Criminal Court.
Third, he should stop arming the warlords, and not negotiate with Taliban.
Fourth, he should tell Iran, Pakistan, Russia, Uzbekistan and other countries that support Taliban and the warlords to stop."
================================

I think I would feel like crying too, if I heard this brave woman speak. BMT

God bless you, Malalai Joya...........
You've been under the mistaken impression that the U.S.
would bring positive change to your country. Take it from
a native and resident of the U.S., the only thing D.C. knows
how to do is ultimately eff things up and make them worse than
than they were before.
Thanks, Simon.

Hi Pastor Tim. Why do you say that Malalai Joya was "under the mistaken impression that the U.S.
would bring positive change to [Afghanistan]"? I never heard Malalai Joya say that in reports about her, nor in her interviews.

I have often heard the people of the USA and other imperialist countries that invaded Afghanistan show that THEY are the ones who are "under the mistaken impression that the U.S. would bring positive change to [Afghanistan]"

Hmmm... well first of all, if you are thanking me for posting this article, then you're welcome.

However, did you read the article, Chaz Gaily Berlusconi? reading what you wrote, I get the impression that you didn't read it.

I will now sum up parts of the article, as a response to what you wrote.

The U.S. military is now killing, maiming, imprisoning without trial and torturing, huge numbers of civilians and freedom fighters in Afghanistan. One cannot blame the USA for doing those things? Are you paying attention???

The U.S. military installed and continues to protect a brutal, corrupt, oppressive puppet government in Afghanistan, which was "elected" by fraud, lies and violent intimidation, and is as oppressive as the Taliban towards women's rights and human rights in general. One cannot blame the USA for installing and protecting that regime? Are you paying attention???

The above actions by the USA drive people to join the Taliban for revenge against the U.S. troops, and to drive out the U.S. troops. THE U.S. WAR OF OCCUPATION IN AFGHANISTAN IS LIKE POURING GASOLINE ON A FIRE TO "EXTINGUISH THE FIRE". You can't bomb a people into peace! Don't you get it??? It is illogical. The U.S. war in Afghanistan is unwinnable. Are you paying attention???

To make it really simple for you:

The U.S. and NATO militaries are a gang of bullies. The U.S. and NATO militaries invaded Afghanistan (for corporate wealth and power) and is supporting bullies there, against other bullies. And you are now telling the people of Afghanistan that it is their fault? How about you just get your U.S.-led NATO militaries out of Afghanistan, which will end protection for the bullies in Afghanistan and will stop pouring gasoline on the fire of war!!! Then the people of Afghanistan can overthrow the bullies that remain.

Understand???

I.e. the people of Afghanistan can end the corruption, and can bring back the progressive govenment that they had in the 1970s - but your U.S.-led imperialists are busy protecting and arming people who are preventing that progressive government!

So get your boot of the necks of the Afghans, stop interfering in Afghanistan for your corporate profits, and they will be fine without you!!!

Go away foreign troops!!! Go away!!! We don't want you!!!

Afghans are the only ones able to bring real peace in their country if they decide to sit down together and to decide to make this peace be the real priority,they all know how different they are from south to north,east to west in their own place and they know that they have to find comprehension between all their differencies to rebuilt their country,i wish them much courage,they have suffered since so long.

Afghanistan is known as "The Graveyard of Empires": even Alexander the Great, even Genghis Khan, found themselves stymied by Afghan resistance; not to mention more recently the British, the Russians, and now the U.S...... But in the meantime, with all these WOULD-BE "Conquerors", there was untold suffering by the Afghan people, especially women and children, as in all wars..... Not all that much difference between Genghis Khan's "scorched earth" policies, and our bombings and drones that equally MAKE NO DISTINCTIONS OF WHOM THEY WIPE OUT a whole lot at a time.....

So, am I understanding all this correctly to mean the President should pull all our American troops out of Afghanistan immediately, and let the chips fall where they may!? I hear an awful lot of negative rhetoric about the US being in this country, and little if any regarding the Russian incursion.

Frankly I'd like to see all our young men and women brought home from both Iraq and Afghanistan, but what might the consequences of that be? I have the sinkling feeling that no matter what President Obama does, no new troops to the area, or sending more troops, he's going to be taken to task. With all this talk, I haven't seen any concrete ideas on how leaving Afghanistan can be accomplished successfully.

This fighting is, at it's heart, a religious fight, not a political one in the most understandable sense. Freedom of religion is a fight that never seems to be winable, as every group believes they are right, and that everyone should believe the way they do.

Not to demean this subject, but a sign I have on one of my file cabinets seems more than ever true, it says "the more people I meet the more I like my dog".

Hi Lyn C,
apparently you didn't read the article. Please read the article BEFORE you comment on it.

if you read the article, you will see what I summarised of the aritlce, in a comment above:

The U.S. military is now killing, maiming, imprisoning without trial and torturing, huge numbers of civilians and freedom fighters in Afghanistan.

The U.S. military installed and continues to protect a brutal, corrupt, oppressive puppet government in Afghanistan, which was "elected" by fraud, lies and violent intimidation, and is as oppressive as the Taliban towards women's rights and human rights in general.

THE U.S. WAR OF OCCUPATION IN AFGHANISTAN IS LIKE POURING GASOLINE ON A FIRE TO "EXTINGUISH THE FIRE". You can't bomb a people into peace! It is illogical. The U.S. war in Afghanistan is unwinnable.

The people of Afghanistan want the foreign troops (U.S., NATO and Australian troops) to leave Afghanistan NOW, so that they can overthrow the fundamentalist oppressors who are strenthened while the foreign troops remain. In Malalai Joya's own words:

"Today, we have two enemies in Afghanistan--the occupation forces, and the Taliban and warlords. If one of them is gone, it makes our task easier. Then we will have only one enemy to fight."

PART OF THE ARTICLE:
----------------------------

INTERVIEWER:

"WHAT DO you think about people in the antiwar movement in this country who now say that we shouldn't speak out for U.S. immediate withdrawal from Afghanistan? They say that the U.S. should stay longer, because if it pulls out, the situation for women will get worse. What's your message to them?"

MALALAI JOYA:

"I THINK the people who are saying that should know that the people of Afghanistan do not want more troops in Afghanistan.

"First of all, it is the right of my people to say that. Secondly, we believe that no nation can bring liberation to another nation. Today's situation, this eight-year disaster, is a good example of what war and occupation does.

"People also say that if the U.S. withdrew, there would be a civil war. My message to people who say that is that there already is a civil war, and as long as these troops are in Afghanistan, the worse the civil war will be.

"The occupation forces are even bombing wedding parties. In Nuristan, 47 people, including the groom and bride, were killed. In a bombing in May in Farah province, 150 civilians were killed, most of them women and children. In Kunduz province, 200 civilians were killed, most of them women and children. After all of these war crimes, why haven't they apologized?

'We want occupation forces out of Afghanistan as soon as possible. They must end this tragedy of the so-called war on terror, which is war on innocent civilians. In the last eight years, fewer than 2,000 Taliban have been killed, and more than 8,000 civilians by U.S. forces. The occupation forces are not protecting my people or women--they are doing more harm.

"They say they are bringing democracy to Afghanistan. In reality they have brought warlords and drug lords to power. They have allowed my country to become the center of drugs today. Even the White House says that the Taliban have become more powerful since the 2001 war. These medieval-minded men of the Taliban are destroying the country.

"Today, we have two enemies in Afghanistan--the occupation forces, and the Taliban and warlords. If one of them is gone, it makes our task easier. Then we will have only one enemy to fight."

Hi Kathleen. Please don't stereotype Afghan people.

If you read the article, you will see that the people of Afghanistan are not deluded about who has invaded or oppressed them. You will see that it is only the people who believe the capitalist media who believe falsehoods about the invasion and occupation.

No, Kathleen, the USA and its NATO and Australian allies could not have helped, unless the populations of the USA, NATO countries and Australia first replaced their capitalist governments with truly representative, egalitarian, NON-IMPERIALIST governments. Without that, the capitalist imperialist agenda of the ruling classes of the invading forces was inevitable:

For a regime that would allow U.S.-led control of Afghanistan, as a transit route for oil and gas from Central Asia, and a regime that would allow U.S./NATO bases from which to threaten Iran and Russia, dominate Pakistan and the oil-rich and gas-rich states of Central Asia.

I feel annoyed, and I waste my time, if people write untrue things without reading the article, and I must respond by repeating what is actually written in the article, in order to get the facts out.

Please read the article before you comment.

Thankyou Sara :)

We can force the U.S. government to pull out of Afghanistan, the same way we forced the government to pull out of Vietnam: by building a mass movement which engages in political education and civil disobedience and extends into the U.S. military, in alliance with people fighting in Afghanistan against the U.S. occupiers. (In the Afghanistan, this means an alliance with Malalai Joya, RAWA, etc..)

Birdie P., do you support the people of Afghanistan in their democratic will (which is not represented by the recent corrupt, violence-ridden elections under foreign occupation)? I mean the people of Afghanistan want the U.S.-led occupation forces to leave. Do you want that, too?

Or do you support the U.S.-led NATO occupation war (which kills and oppresses the people of Afghanistan, for U.S. wealth and power)?

Thank you Malalai Joya for posting this information. I personally have felt that our troops should be pulled out of Afghanistan. I have talked with many who are undecided about it. Including those who have been deployed there before, and not one has told me that they see a reason they should remaiin. I am praying that many folks will read this and it will help them to see that U.S. troops need to leave Afghanistan.

And Simon, it will be interesting to see what comes from your "band box" about my comment. I would like to think that you just want folks to support our troops coming home, but as I read response after response to each and evey comment, I detect an angry attitude coming from you. I'm sure Malalai Joya appreciates any support she can get to convince the U.S. to back her, but what she doesn't need is someone with an angry attitude, critizing folks and accusing them of not reading the post before commenting and then brow beating them with words to change their thinking. I wonder if anyone will post a comment that you will not pick apart.

Paula L., do not make personal attacks against me. That is against the Care2 Code of Conduct, and is not constructive - it is merely destructive when you do that.

Yes, I am angry. All emotions are healthy - they evolved because they serve a purpose. Anger gives us motivation to stand up against bullying. When people (mainly the USA) arm and train oppressive mullahs and rich landlords to make a terrorist war against the new progressive government and people of Afghanistan (as the USA did in the 1970s), then it is HEALTHY to be angry at those supporters of murderous bullying.


When people (mainly the USA) go to Afghanistan with weapons to kill and oppress the people there, then it is HEALTHY to be angry at those paid killers, who engage in murderous bullying.

When people lie about what is happening in Afghanistan (pretending that the U.S. occupation forces are "bringing democracy to Afghanistan"), and or in any other way support the murderous bullying, then it is HEALTHY to be angry at those supporters of murderous bullying.

If you want to know more about how every emotion is healthy in certain circumstances, then I suggest you read the psychology books "Families and How to Survive Them", and "Life and How to Survive It", both by John Cleese and Robin Skynner.

PS, Paula L., if people write stuff that supports oppression, or if you write abusive stuff, then YES, I will "pick apart" that writing, and I will expose it as the destructive propaganda and abuse that it is!!!

If you have an objection to debates, then the appropriate action is: don't write in a forum.

PPS, if people don't read the article, then, OF COURSE I wil say "read the article before you comment". That is appropriate.

Kudos to you, Simon, for setting the record straight vis-a-vis Afghanistan. Also, Malalai Joya - a native of this region herself - knows what she's talking about when she blames the US/NATO occupation forces of "pouring gasoline on the fire" through their support of a brutal, corrupt regime that behaves just as bad as - if not worse than - the Taliban.

"Those who do not learn from history are doomed to repeat it." This statement is very appropos to today as to the day the author (Santiana) made it. From Alexander the Great to Ghengis Khan, 2 British failures to the Soviet debacle up to the current war, it is all the same. The Afghan tribes were never conquered; the terrain is extremely rugged, and these tribesmen know it like the backs of their hands. A people determined to fight can never be subjugated. It's time for the leadership and the people to wake up to and accept this fact.

Thanks again, Simon; and, a happy, blessful Thanksgiving to you.

When we learn to help other countries with NON military intervention and build instead of destroy, educate instead of pontificate, and offer medicine, infrastructure and order instead of chaos, we could help. Now the U.S. is the barbarian horde with advanced technology that bumbles into town like bozos in a rodeo killing and wrecking the place and then leaving the wounded and dead for the buzzards.

Who could want that? Who could be proud of that? WHO would want to vote for that.

Obama is going to have to stop this or end his presidency in shame, the same shame that the bush legacy taints America with.

Only the U.N. should have the right to intervene into other countries, with other countries, and with the host country ONLY. These wars are against humanity and common sense.

Yes, Emagin, reducing our financial support for imperialist war is great : )

But voting does work, Emagin - if you have a mass movement to promote a non-capitalist candidate. This is how Hugo Chavez was elected in Venezuela, and the mass movement that got him elected is supporting his democratic socialist reforms, and defending the new democratic socialist government against violence by the rich and powerful (e.g. the attempted coup in 2002). :)

Hi Casey Reed : )

Even if the USA simply stops oppressing and exploiting the world, that is all most anti-imperialists want. That way, the U.S. will stop causing huge carnage and suffering and psychological trauma to millions of people each year, and the U.S. will stop taking hundreds of billions of dollars worth of wealth each year, from poverty-stricken Third World workers and health, education and welfare systems.

That way we can build up our economies in peace with much more sharing of wealth (instead of that wealth going to U.S.-based multinationals), and we can much more easily overcome oppressive U.S. puppet regimes and poverty, and ensure much more human rights.

Saving Afganistan from Islamic fanatics foreign to Afganis cannot be called an "Imperialist war".

It does cost us too much in lives and money, and questions remain how to win it more efficiently, but the goal of the war is NOBLE.
 

Simon Wood (207)
Saturday November 28, 2009, 9:43 pm
Birdie P., I don't know what you mean by "Islamic fanatics". That term has many meanings, and it can include people who are not oppressive, and who have plenty of faith in Islam, and campaign against injustice.

If you are talking about Afghanistan's Northern Alliance and Taliban, well, they are Islamic fanatics AND Islamic FUNDAMENTALISTS.

The USA, NATO and Australia are not doing anything to "save Afghanistan from Islamic fanatics" nor from Islamic fundamentalists. The USA, NATO and Australia are SAYING that they are fighting against Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism. However, people LIE. And in the case of the USA, NATO and Australia in Afghanistan, the governments and capitalist media of those countries are saying very different things to what they are doing in Afghanistan. We get closer to the truth if we assess people on what they DO, not what they say.

So... what are the USA, NATO and Australia doing in Afghanistan? You can read the answer in the article. Your words make it clear that YOU DID NOT READ THE ARTICLE.

Anyway, I will summarise what the article says about what the USA, NATO and Australia doing in Afghanistan:

those nations have their militaries in Afghanistan, killing, maiming and oppressing the people of Afghanistan (and most of those who they attack and kill are CIVILIANS), to prop up the fundamentalist Northern Alliance warlord government, which came to power undemocratically, first by the USA appointing them to power, and then by electoral intimidation and fraud. It is a regime that is corrupt and brutal, and is as oppressive to women as the Taliban was. And in fighting for that regime, the USA, NATO and Australia are increasing the number of people who are joining the Taliban, to drive out the invaders, and to avenge their destroyed homes, destroyed livelihoods, and to avenge their civilian loved ones who the USA, NATO and Australia have killed, maimed, imprisoned and tortured without trial.

And why does the USA, NATO and Australia do this? For OIL and other fossil fuels (U.S. dominance in Afghanistan allows the USA to control a transit route for oil and gas from the oil-rich and gas-rich states of Central Asia). And also they do this so that they can maintain military bases in Afghanistan, from which to dominate and threaten the states of Central Asia, Russia, Iran and Pakistan.

The actions of the USA, NATO and Australia that I have described above are called IMPERIALISM.

You can see that what I say it true if you simply READ THE ARTICLE, read what Malalai Joya says in her interviews, or read what is written by the people of R.A.W.A. (Afghanistan's oldest women's rights organisation) -

http://www.rawa.org

The only people who are working to save Afghanistan from Islamic fundamentalists are the progressive people of Afghanistan, and the peoplearound the world who are in solidarity with those progressive people.

PS, I also recommend this article to everyone who wants to know the reality of Afghanistan, beyond the self-serving propaganda of the capitalist politicians and media corporations:


Afghanistan, Another Untold Story

http://www.care2.com/news/member/860103097/1097035

'The war in Afghanistan is about gaining profitable control of one of the last vast untapped reserves of the earth's dwindling fossil fuel supply, & planting US military power into still another region of the world. Obama's talk of "change" rings false.'
