Doctors without Borders Afghan Hospital Singled Out for Attack 5 Times
Nazi USA's military made 5 passes over the Doctors without Borders (MSF in French) hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan and bombed only the hospital, nothing else, despite the fact that huge flags on its roof identified it as a hospital. IT WAS A DELIBERATE ATTACK, and when it comes to the US military, IT IS ALWAYS A DELIBERATE ATTACK. If you think you can stand on the streets of San Francisco and applaud the Navy's Blue Death as it roars illegally low over our heads, wasting tax dollars and oil...

Remake the world
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.”...

America's Criminal Afghanistan Legacy
Posted: Thu Jan 30, 2014 11:50PM
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....

Peace and refuge
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...
