New Order of the Day in Afghanistan: Cut and Run  - by Scott Taylor

"As the entire Afghanistan intervention plunges towards an inevitable disastrous and bloody conclusion, Canada is leading the race to abandon ship...an inglorious ending looms large on the horizon, cutting and running seems to be the order of the day.."

US To Hand Over Notorious Military Prison to Afghans

http://rt.com/usa/news/us-military-prison-bagram-205/

"More than a decade after America's war in Afghanistan began, the US will part with a notorious military prison there, signing off on Friday the control of the detention facility at the Bagram airbase to the Afghans. Speaking to Salon last year, Daphne Eviatar of Human Rights First said, 'There are no laws under the rules of war governing how you treat detainees, in this kind of armed conflict, at play in Afghanistan, so as a result, she added, 'The US government says that those laws don't apply beyond its own borders therefore no laws apply' at Bagram..."

Yet Canada handed over POWS just the same. Too bad all our pols conspired to bury the detainee issue.

You know how they always report how many women and children the terrorists kill.

This one killed nine children and three women.

I suggest the proper course of action would be to hand him over to the Afghan authorities for proper interrogation and a fair trial.

"...Judge Paget's decision was not based on the assumption that Mohammed Gul was a potential terrorist or threat to the UK, but rather, that any armed attack against the Afghani government or the [NATO] coalition forces should be seen as being terrorist in its nature, thereby underming the very concept of self-determination.."

US soldier kills 16 Afghans, deepening crisis

 

Quote:

An American soldier opened fire on villagers near his base in southern Afghanistan Sunday and killed 16 civilians, according to President Hamid Karzai, who called it an "assassination" and furiously demanded an explanation from Washington. Nine children and three women were among the dead.

The killing spree deepened a crisis between U.S. forces and their Afghan hosts over Americans burning Muslim holy books on a base in Afghanistan last month. The Quran burnings sparked weeks of violent protests and attacks that left some 30 dead. Six U.S. service members have been killed by their Afghan colleagues since the burnings came to light, and the violence had just started to calm down.

Sorry but the CIA/ISI should have left the Marxist Taraki government alone in the same way they should have left Iran alone in 1953. The U.S. and friends have interfered with a lot more countries than just Afghanistan over several decades. Afghanistan is but one instance. Torture, basic human rights violations, and grinding poverty have become permanent features of U.S.-occupied Afghanistan. The CIA-ISI's Talibanization of Afghanistan and Pakistan since the 1980s and 90s was never agreed to by millions of desperately poor people living in those countries.

Group of US Soldiers Murder 9 Kids and 3 Women in Afghanistan

"On 11 March 2012, a group of American soldiers murdered 16 civilians, including nine children in southern Kandahar province in Afghanistan. Witnesses say the American soldiers were laughing when they carried out the shootings. The US Embassy in Kabul said only one American soldier had been detained after the shootings.

Afghan President Hamid Karzai described the Kandahar attack as 'intellectual murder'. 'They poured chemicals over their dead  bodies and burned them,' Haji Samad told Reuters. A 15 year old survivoer named Rafiullah said that soldiers broke into his house, woke up his family and began shooting them..."

Afghan Tribal Leaders: Afghan Civilian Massacre Pre-Planned

"The tribal leaders of the southern province of Kandahar said on Monday that several US forces, not a single soldier, contributed to the brutal carnage of Afghan civilians and that the violent actions had been planned previously. They say the carnage was in retaliation against a deadly bomb attack on the US troops in Zagabad district in the town of Panjwaii in the province of Kandahar, which inflicted serious damage on the American military forces.

Following the blast, the American forces summoned local Afghans and tribal leaders of the region and vowed a bloody revenge on their children and wives, Kandahar tribal leaders added. Local witnesses however, put the number of the victims at 18, saying nearly a dozen bodies of the Afghan victims were burnt after the slaughter..."

It seems to me that youve implied the NDP are insiders to the specifics on torture and recent war crimes in the Afghanistan. You seem to be suggesting that the Harpers and Liberals before them have been perfectly transparent to public inquiries, and that if only the NDP would press them on these issues democracy might be served. 

And your conspiracy theory scenario is just not the case because Ottawa is broken. Our corrupt stooges have no incentive to be held accountable to the public however much as the NDP opposes the current setup. The only way our colonial administrators can be forced to stand up like men with spines and tell the truth, and not cunningly and willfully lie their bare faces off to Canada's Parliament, is if more Canadians vote NDP in opposing the corrupt stooges currently abusing phony majority dictatorial power in Ottawa.

Canadian Training Mission Meant to Free Up US Soldiers For Combat: Documents

"Since the Canadian training mission in Afghanistan began last year, the federal government has said the purpose is to help Afghan army and police develop the skills needed to take responsibility for the country's security in 2014. But shortly before visiting Afghanistan this past Christmas, Gov Gen David Johnston was told another reason 950 Canadian troops have been deployed to Kabul and two other central Afghan cities:

to free up US soldiers for combat.

The statement is found in briefing notes that were prepared in advance of Johnston's visit to Afghanistan, Kuwait and HMCS Vancouver in the Mediterranean and obtained by Postmedia News through Access to Information. According to the briefing note for Johnston, 'location and billets were based on...where it was assessed that Canada could get the greatest effect on the ground and free up American forces to move to a combat role.'

It's the first time such an objective has been mentioned. The Department of National Defence did not respond to questions.."

M. Spector M. Spector's picture

Ha! What a joke!

The goal of the "training mission" is to "train 352,000 Afghan soldiers by the time Canada and its NATO allies leave in 2014."

But suddenly the opizishin is outraged to discover that the "training mission" is also freeing up US soldiers to fight! Why didn't Peter McKay tell us this? 

Who could possibly have imagined that Canada's "training mission" would result in enhancing the ability of NATO and its Afghan stooges to kill more Afghans?

Jack Harris and John McKay are shocked - shocked! - that instead of Canadians handing out lollipops to school children they are actually assisting in NATO's continued military assault on Afghanistan!

Peter MacKay Vows to Keep Canadian Trainers in Afghanistan Despite Upheaval

http://news.nationalpost.com/2012/03/13/peter-mackay-vows-to-keep-canadi...

"Liberal Defence Critic John McKay, whose party supported the training mission, said every incident involving an American or other allied troop puts Canadian forces at risk while endangering the work and sacrifice that has clearly been made.

'We spent billions and billions of dollars in Afghanistan, and we have 158 dead and hundreds with injuries, but we don't seem to be any closer,' he said. 'We might be approaching enough is enough. I don't think we're quite there yet, but I'm hoping that the senior leadership in our military and in our government has talked to our counterparts and been very blunt with them.'

NDP defence critic David Christopherson, however, said the incidents should be the last straw, and that as other countries change their timetable for withdrawal, Canada would be well advised to do the same. 'The recent events in Afghanistan are certainly tragic and it certainly underscores the no-win situation,' he said. 'It is time for our troops to come home."

Some of my righteous dude Liberal friends actually supported the CIA, ISI, and Saudi's covert interventions in 1980s Afghanistan.

So, did any of the anti-NDP supporters here actually vote in any of the last several elections in protest of Canadian troops in Afghanistan? Or are the comments here just a lot of hot air?

I know which party I voted for, and it's the only party in Ottawa on the record as calling for withdrawing combat troops from the CIA's 30 year-long project in Central Asia.  I guess that gives me the right to complain about our troops having been there ever since the Libranos secretly slid them into a U.S.-style combat role in Kandahar beginning in 2005 after a lot of stuttering and stammering to the NDP's questioning in Parliament. Wink

Roadside bomb kills 10 civilians in Afghanistan

At least ten Afghan civilians, including six women and four children, have been killed and two others wounded when a roadside bomb went off in Afghanistan's southern province of Uruzgan, Press TV reports.

Sayed Hamdard Maruf, a spokesman for the provincial governor, said the incident took place at around 11 a.m. local time (0630 GMT) on Thursday in the Deh Rawud district of the province, located some 370 kilometers (229 miles) south of Afghan capital city Kabul, when a vehicle touched off a buried explosive device.

 

On Wednesday, eight civilians lost their lives in a similar incident in the neighboring province of Helmand.

Actually, a Jehovah candidate would have been a step up from the Cons, Libs and Dipsters on the issue of Afghanistan involvement if you understand anything of that religion.  But no, here we didn't have any party available that took a stand against Afghanistan involvement, and even then it represents but a single issue one way or another, which although important enough to get out of bed for if it actually meant changing anything, still represents scarce meat on the bone when considering every other foreign policy issue of contention.

What do they have to say on the matter of our latest military re-alignment to the peacemaking role in Afghanistan...from south to north away from the previous mission of actual combat operations?  I think these statements provide us with a clue in the absence of elaboration on their website.  Such statements are quite difficult to come anywhere in fact.  Even google fails us in this regard.  The above quote from the platform however constitutes almost precicely the sum total of their remarks about policy in Afghanistan, after 10 plus years of war and many billions of dollars in public expenditures, lives lost, bodies and minds forever maimed.

The Afghan People's Right to Resist  -  by John V Walsh

http://dissidentvoice.org/2012/03/the-afghan-peoples-right-to-resist/

"The news of the latest US atrocities against the Afghan people struck like a thunderclap over the weekend. Here were whole families killed for sport by a US soldier - although many reports say it was a detatchment of soldiers and that seems the more likely story.

As FAIR reported here, the media treated this as simply a public relations disaster like the urination on the bodies of slaughtered Afghans by the soldiers of the Empire or the 'accidental' burning of the Koran. This is not war; it is an occupation. Every occupation is built on a mountain of corpses.

Let us be perfectly clear. The right to resist occupation by any and all means is enshrined in international law and somewhere deeply in the human brain. And that includes resisting by force. So whose cause is just? It is the cause of those Afghanis who are fighting to throw off a bloody Occupation. That has to be recognized. It may not be a slogan around which to build a movement of millions. But it is surely the truth and we must point it out at every turn..."
