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!”
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.
