Barack Obama’s “just war” in Afghanistan may be grinding to a bloody halt. Protesters all across the occupied country are throwing themselves into the gears of our imperialist machinery outraged over NATO forces throwing Korans and other religious material into a burn pit at Bagram Air Base.
The outrage ignited massive anti-occupation protests across the country and those protests sparked the slaughter of over 30 protesters by NATO forces. Notice I wrote “protesters” and not “combatants” or “belligerents” as the Peace Prize administration likes to refer to them these days.

Ah, the Good War in Afghanistan. You know, Iraq and Pakistan and Yemen and soon Iran… all those “wars” were based on lies… we know that. But at least we know “The Good War” was about 9/11, right?
They aren’t even trying to continue the charade anymore. The marriage of the corporation and the government is right out in the open in today’s New York Times as they pretty much announce that the Pentagon is nothing more than the enforcement division of the combined mergers and acquisitions department of a few hundred of the nation’s leading businesses.
Apparently we have stuck it out in Afghanistan longer than any other war in history because, hell, the Pentagon Business Task Force found trillions of dollars worth of minerals like lithium, copper, and GOLD littered all over the country and goddamn it, they are going to get it no matter how many poor people have to die in the process.
But Afghanistan is The Good War… and don’t you ever say otherwise.
