Nine Years in Afghanistan—How Many More?
In the name of the "good" war, the Obama administration's promised troop escalation in Afghanistan has further entrenched our scarce resources into a war that cannot be "won." The past nine years of illegal military action have failed to create any tangible peace in the country, nor have they brought increased security or a reduction of terrorist groups, let alone any freedom for Afghan women. Instead, thousands of Afghan civilians have been killed in the cross-fire along with a corresponding increase in troop casualties.
Haven't the past nine years proved that democracy and peace cannot be built under a foreign military occupation? We Need an Exit Strategy, Not an Escalation!
