Remake the world - by Ted Rudow III, MA
The U.S. has also slain many in Afghanistan, both those called the Taliban and those whom they had mistaken for Taliban and terrorists. It made little difference to the U.S., for they were convinced of the righteousness of their cause and shrugged off the many innocents who died as “mistakes that happen.” After all, Afghans had been killing each other for hundreds of years, so what was a few more—especially since the U.S. had come to bring them “liberty.”

A need - by Ted Rudow III, MA
The White House and Afghanistan are reportedly close to an agreement that would allow continued U.S. raids even after most American troops withdraw in 2014. Under the deal, the United States would continue raiding Afghan homes under "extraordinary circumstances" to save lives. In return, the Afghan government has asked President Obama to write a letter apologizing for U.S. operations that have killed or injured Afghan civilians.

Prisoners - by Ted Rudow III, MA
With less than a year left in his final term, President Hamid Karzai insists that he is eager to leave the presidential palace and lead a quieter life. It turns out, though, he may just be moving next door, to a lavish new home yards from the complex that has been the seat of his power for more than a decade.

Peace and refuge - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Poor Afghanistan has really suffered, and it’s now suffering worse than ever. The poor, the women, children, and old folks suffer the most because they have so little already and are so needy, so often they don’t survive. And the men go off to fight and often they don’t make it either. War is horrible

Won't mean the U.S. has won - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize in a stunning decision that honored the first-year U.S. president more for promise than achievement, and drew both praise and skepticism around the world. But critics called the Nobel committee's decision premature, given that Obama has achieved few tangible gains, as he still grapples with challenges ranging from the war in Afghanistan and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to nuclear standoffs with Iran and North Korea, and now the war on Libya. The raid...

Bigotry - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Untold thousands have died in the decade since then, among them the family of Masuda Sultan, an Afghan woman living in New York at the time of the 9/11 attack. She soon got word that 19 members of her family had been killed in a U.S. bomb attack in Afghanistan.

MR Original – Afghanistan: Endless War for Resource Control - by Abby Martin
War has always been about two things: resources and control. It seems more than coincidental that before the US invasion, the Taliban had eradicated the opium crop in the Golden Crescent. Now, 90% of the world's heroin comes from Afghanistan.

Not good in history - by Ted Rudow III, MA
President Obama is expected to announce today a withdrawal of up to 10,000 U.S. troops by the end of the year. Under the plan, the United States would still have some 67,000 troops, plus thousands of contractors, in Afghanistan at the start of 2013—the same total as before last year’s surge.
