A War That Can't Be Won

By Peter Galbraith

The declaration of victory caps weeks of farce and failure, especially for the UN.

A War That Can't Be Won

Starts with candy, ends in napalm

By Serge Halimi

The French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner still hopes to "win hearts and minds with a bullet-proof vest" (2) and McChrystal assures the world that "the American goal in Afghanistan must not be primarily to hunt down and kill Taliban insurgents but to protect the population".

When Is It Legitimate For The Oppressed To Take Up Arms?

By Arundhati Roy

Roy is against the development of nuclear weapons without regard to the lives of the poor, and the refusal to grant Kashmir independence. She has called the US-led war in Afghanistan "another act of terror against the people of the world" and considers US-style capitalism to be the cause of much of the world's instability.

A long-term disaster for Obama and the US

CounterPunch
by Patrick Cockburn

11/03/09

The election in Afghanistan has turned into a disaster for all who promoted it.

The American way of abandonment

The American Conservative
by Patrick J. Buchanan

11/03/09

That there are warlords who are war criminals, allied with the Afghan regime and us, that drug-traffickers are abetted by high officials, that Karzai stole the election, no one denies. That the Pakistani intelligence services are shot through with elements loyal to a Taliban they helped bring to power in Kabul, that there are Pakistani army officers who believe they should be defending their country against India, not fighting America’s war in Waziristan, is also undeniable. But what does it avail us to insult these people who have cast their lot with us, many of whom will, with famines and friends, pay a far more terrible price than we if we lose these wars. And if we are going to abandon these people, as we have so many others in the past, let us at least tell them, and ourselves, the truth...
