As the 11th anniversary of the U.S./NATO occupation of Afghanistan nears, the danger of new and wider wars in the Middle East is on the rise. In Afghanistan and neighboring Pakistan, the death toll continues to mount. In April, Washington announced a plan to stay in Afghanistan until 2024. The stepped up and illegal use of killer drones has added to the deadly toll.
The U.S. and its allies are arming, funding and training the opposition forces in Syria, while talking of imposing a “no-fly zone” on that country – a step that would immediately lead to a bigger war.
Massive U.S. air and naval forces are deployed in the Persian/Arabian Gulf, and leaders in both Washington and its main regional ally, Israel, threaten Iran with an all-out attack, not ruling out the use of nuclear weapons. Vicious sanctions have been put in place, deliberately designed to inflict maximum suffering on the Iranian people. In occupied Palestine, Israel illegally seizes more Palestinian land and violently suppresses the people on a daily basis.
