12 Years Of Liberating Women Of Afghanistan. So What Do They Want To Tell Us

On the 7th of October 2001 a coalition of 18 countries including New Zealand attacked and invaded Afghanistan. We were tld this was to capture Osama Bin Laden for the 9/11 attacks. We were told when that didn’t materialize that we were there to liberate women, keep babies safe, help girls get schooling and safe kittens while we were at it.

So on the 12th anniversary of this atrocious bunch of lies and the criminal illegal war we were involved in I thought it would be a good idea to let the women of Afghanistan tell us what they think of the occupation of their country.

Afghanistan: 12 Years of Occupation – “Down with the US Invaders and their Afghan Stooges!”

(Ooops)

With the aggression of the US and NATO occupiers on October 7, 2001 in our homeland, it has been twelve years now that our country is facing war, destruction, and the killing of thousands of its innocent civilians. The US used the terrorist attacks of 9/11 as a pretext to change the regime in Afghanistan and pave the way for its long-term military presence in the region. For the first time in their history, Afghanistan’s people, who were tired and fed up from the crimes of the Jehadi pigs and the brutalities of the Taliban, did not react to an occupier force.

The US government and its allies promised our people democracy, but imposed upon them the most undemocratic, corrupt, and mafia government of our history; they spoke of ‘war on terror’ but brought the murderers and terrorists of the Northern Alliance, gun-lords and drug kingpins to power, and have now extended their hands in friendship to the Taliban; the US used human rights and women’s rights as an excuse, but Afghanistan still faces the worse kinds of human rights violations and horrifying catastrophes against its women; they promised our people liberation and freedom, but practically turned our country into a narco-state and the center of their longest-running criminal war.

From the very start, the democratic forces of Afghanistan and peace-loving elements of the world had recognized the US’s war in Afghanistan as part of its imperialist policies. They announced that that this superpower was only invading Afghanistan to compete with its emerging contenders and was cementing its military bases in the heart of Asia towards this purpose.

  1. What you must realize is that any woman who was allowed anything like an equal place in Afghan society under the Afghan Democratic People’s Party had to flee to India, Iran, or other places when some of the planet’s most woman-hating elements – armed, funded, and led by U.S. Nazis under psychotic Russia-hater Zbigniew Brzezinski, the WWII Hitler-allied un-Muslim Brotherhood, and their al-Qaeda Islamofascist creation – took Kabul. What woman in her right mind would return to Afghanistan under Taliban rule or under the rule of the U.S.’s landlord allies. Even the Global Research article doesn’t mention that the Afghan Democratic People’s Party undertook a liberation of Afghan women under the protection of the Red Army (Shame on Global Research and shame on Michel Chossudovsky!). This video has an Italian text but you can tell by the footage that women fared well before Nazi pressure on the Kremlin (and I use the term advisedly) forced them to withdraw the troops: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB9UbYWypZw&feature=related

    • I have let this comment through because it makes valid points and I like your blog but comments that start with: What you must realize, generally don’t go down well on this blog. Read my “martyr”page to understand what I’m getting at here.

      The article was not written by Michael Chossudowsky but by the ladies of RAWA themselves. Theire website documents the brutality against women in Afghanistan and their history.

      The point I was trying to make is that under US occupation women fared no better than under Taliban or Russian rule and I decided to let them speak for themselves as that f course is part of the problem. Everybody and their dog wants to speak on their behalf while they are perfectly capable of speaking up for themselves.

      • Points well taken. However, Michel Chossudovsky (whom I otherwise admire) is still responsible for posting the article. I don’t know who are this “Revolutionary Association of Women of Afghanistan” who authored the article, but I have to be suspicious that they avoid some very critical facts in the history of their country. I overlooked the opportunity to post a link to a very instructive interview in this regard (this one in English): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fTIvNFTiv7U
