The war in Afghanistan hangs like some cloud of poison gas over Washington that won’t blow away.
It sickens everything as it spreads. It continues to suck precious tax dollars out of the Treasury, money this country cannot afford to squander, especially as millions of Americans are sinking into poverty and joblessness exceeds 10 percent.
Afghanistan has already been under illegal U.S. assault for eight years and President Obama’s top military advisers are telling him it will take many more years to achieve “victory,” a term having utterly no meaning for skyrocketing numbers of dead and dismembered civilians.
And dispatching more troops means dispatching more targets. “Deaths from bombings soaring,” the Miami Herald reported on Aug. 12. IED explosions soared to 828 in July, more than twice as many as in the previous July and the highest level since the war began. This is the road to “victory”?
It shows another view of the Afghan occupation which Western viewers are not aware of.
